I believe the ClassID property should still be unique even if there isn't a VI Server class type for it.

Saying "Thanks that fixed it" or "Thanks that answers my question" and not giving a Kudo or Marked Solution, is like telling your waiter they did a great job and not leaving a tip. Please, tip your waiters.

The cast to Picture VI Server class is a really interesting solution. I would have never thought to even try that.
