Error 7 with Tegam4040 amplifier

Go to solution

I recently installed Labview 2014 along with all the other things I need (such as NI-motion, PXI stuff, etc.) and the install went successfully.

I currently have a PXI-1073. which contains a PXI-5152 and the TEGAM4040B instrumentation amplifier, and I have a MID-7602/7604 stepper motor driver that is all connected to the computer to control an experiment where I have to change the angle of an optic and blast it with a laser/collect amplified signals in sequence, etc.

When I reinstalled all the peripherals work fine except that I am now getting the following error whenever I run the sample program that TEGAM gave me to run the amplifier (ie TEGAM4040 - Control [Demo].vi). This .vi definitely worked before I installed Labview 2014. How do I go about troubleshooting this/what is wrong?


"Error 7 occurred at Call Library Function Node in Tegam4040 -->Tegam4040.lvlib:Tegam4040 ->Tegam4040 - Control [Demo].vi


Possible reason(s):

LabVIEW: File not found. The file might be in a different location or deleted. Use the command prompt or the file explorer to verify that the path is correct.
NI-488: Nonexistent GPIB interface."

Help me LabVIEWwan Kenobi, you're my only hope... I have attached the TEGAM program .vi for convenience.

This error generally occurs if you provide a path that does not exist for dynamic DLL loading. Do you get the same error when loading other DLLs, or just with this DLL particularly?

I contacted the TEGAM engineer and we were able to get it sorted out with a new updated install package. However, thank you very much for your help. 🙂
