MAX can see PXI 8464, but not LabView

I have a PXI-8464 card, and it shows up on MAX, but it doesn't show up on my pull down manual in LabView. What is wrong?

Good afternoon Bladhart, 

 

I have had this happen to me several times. If you have not already tried it, select the Browse option on the drop-down menu (see Browse screenshot.png) and see if you can manually navigate to the device name that way. 

 

In general, you can alter the devices shown in that drop-down menu by right-clicking on the menu and selecting I/O Name Filtering (see IO Name Filtering.png). On the menu that opens, you can make sure that the channel(s) and I/O type you are expecting is selected (see Filter Names.png). 

 

Hope this helps! Good luck with your application.

That blue block is the Pickering Visa initialization block. It was supposed to be PXI2::13::INSTR. I also have no browse button.

I have also just noticed that the instance of PXI-1042 under MY System doesn't show any of the devices.2011-03-14_170153.jpg

Hey Bladhart, 

 

Sounds like you're just fallin' apart on me! Let's see if we can't get things working again. With this many modules, you should consider getting phone support-it would greatly expedite this process. I'll help you as much as I can through this forum, though! Smiley Happy

 

Have you tried disconnecting and reconnecting the devices (you may have to close and re-open MAX before you can see them again)?

 

Since Pickering devices are not produced by National Instruments, I am not familiar with how they communicate with MAX. If you can tell me where you found the drivers for them, I can look into it further.

 

Also, what version of Real Time are you running?

 

cheers,

kgarrett
