I am trying to define a simulated device for a device that is controlled through one of my PCs USBs. How do I use MAX to do this. The simulated device list has all manner of NI USB devices, but none for a standard PC USB. I need a USB resource from MAX for my program to wire properly.
There is no such thing as a 'standard' USB device and you certainly do not need a USB device listed in MAX to do the wiring in LabVIEW. You just need a VISA Resource control or constant. Depending on the actual type of USB resource (i.e. USBTMC or RAW), you can optionally set the class. Since simulation is only supported for DAQmx devices, of course you won't be able to run the code until you actually have a device connected.
