I am not sure what you mean. Where are you being prompted for the "device_type_number" or where do you see this referenced. Any clarification you can provide will help.

I mispoke on device_type_number as the variable is labeled as device_type_code, if memory serves correctly, in your older NIDAQ examples. It is the parameter found by using:

Get_DAQ_Device_Info (iDevice,ND_DEVICE_TYPE_CODE,&device_type_code);

where iDevice is the device number set in MAX. For example, this number for a PCI-6052 = 273 and for a PXI-4472 = 335. Does the PXI-4472B have the same device type code as the PXI-4472 or is it different?

Hello Duncan --

From a software perspective, the 4472B is identical to the 4472. If you call DAQ Device info, you will get 335. Also, MAX does not distniguish between the two devices (it uses the DAQ Device Info call under the hood).
