Most "Initialize" VI's have two options "Reset" and "ID Querry", and most times these options are enabled by default.

 

If your instrument identifies even slightly different than what the VI is looking for (like model#) it will fail the ID querry and probably give an error similar to what you are seeing

It's not part of your program?

I am not the programmer of this software plus I am new self learning LabVIEW and I need to get this working.

Usually if you stop the program when the error occurs LabVIEW will open the block diagram and highlight the part in the code that had the error.

 

Other than that you could use the "Find and Replace" function on the block diagram to find the VI.

 

Find and Replace is in the Edit menu.

Thank you all for your time and consideration. I did find the issue and the solution was that the global destination for the DMM was incorrect so I changed it and saved it all.

it is the path or the VISA for the DMM was entered as a global destination path.

Oh, you mean the VISA resource? 

 

Like the com port or GPIB address?
