What is the operating system of your computer?  What version of the NI FieldPoint driver do you have installed?  This card is not compatible with operating systems beyond XP.  Did you always get this error, or is it new?  What changed between when it worked and now?

Dear Shane C,

 

   I am using the operating system XP SP3. i have installed field point version 4.0.1. i have not got any error in past . this time i just reboot the pc with new XP installtion and all the softwares with drivers. 

 

On start of the softweare i got error. I think there is some configration problem.. the comuncation of PC with Serial 485 card with FP-1001 not working.

Ok, if it worked on that system before, you should be able to get it working again.  Does your PCI card show up properly in NI MAX?  Can you upload a screen shot of the device there?  Do you have an option in MAX to send a command to the FP-1001 and see if the communication was established properly?  How does your PCI card show up in the Windows Device Manager, any exclamation points indicating that the device driver is not installed or recognized?
