Solved! Go to Solution.
You'll need to install NI-CAN, if you have not already done so. That is the API you can use with an 8473. After installing it, open Measurement & Automation Explorer, and make sure you can see the 8473 under your devices.
Here's a sample VI (LabVIEW 2009) that I wrote for another developer to do basic testing of CAN communication. You enter a CAN packet as a series of hex bytes, separated by spaces, and it will send it. It displays any CAN packets it receives in the same format.
