This is a simple incompatibility issue with cDAQ chassies and NI 9871 module. The NI-9871 is compatible with CompactRIO chassis using LabVIEW FPGA programming, but not with any cDAQ chassis.
See C Series Module and CompactDAQ or CompactRIO Hardware Compatibility with LabVIEW - NI for more information.
