I had framing errors in the past with too slow optical isolators. In detail they where just fast enough, however together with the given timing tolerance of my talker (sensor), I had framing errors. Reducing the baudrate helped in my case.
Something you may do, is try to use NI-SPY to notice if you're able to see anything on behind the scenes. NI-Spy is a program of ours that reads the ports, and reports whats going on. Just go to Start->Programs->National Instruments->NI-Spy.
Also, what you could do, is in the VI, get rid of the initialization VI, and just pass the Com port through as a constant. The default configuration created through MAX should be able to carry through.
Can you let me know if this helps?
