Setting MeasureWhen causes an error

When I set MeasureWhen (1150057) to AutomaticallyAfterSourceComplete (1025) using AdvancedPropertyAccessService.SetAttributeInt32 I get the error.

Ivi.Driver.SelectorNameException: ModularInstruments.NIDCPower: ModularInstruments.NIDCPower: IVI: (Hex 0xBFFA0045) The channel or repeated capability name is not allowed.

Attribute: NIDCPOWER_ATTR_MEASURE_WHEN, Channel: 0
Error code: -1074134971

Note: I am also seeing the error: Could not find assembly: Ivi.Driver.resources.dll

I have not been able to find that dll

I also tried setting dcPowerSession.Outputs["0"].Measurement.MeasureWhen and got the same error.

Looking at the NI example code, I found it was setting Session.Measurement.Configuration.MeasureWhen

 

This is not consistent with the documentation that says MeasureWhen is channel-based; but, it works!

New documentation probably assumes you are using "independent channels" which is a different and now default usage model introduced in newer NI-DCPower releases.
