I have a refnum that I am trying to convert into a path to use in another VI. When I try the conversion it gives an error "Wired refnums are of different types" But both the source and the sink are .NET refnums? Why would this cause an error when the program itself says they are the same? Are they not actually the same?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please attach your VI (the real thing, the .vi file, not a "picture" of it). We cannot tell what you are doing or trying to do, so giving advice that addresses your problem is, at best, a guess ...
The Refnum To Path function only works on file references ("byte stream file reference"), such as from Open/Create/Replace File.
