I'm developing a GigE Vision Camera.
Now I have met the same problem http://forums.ni.com/t5/Machine-Vision/GigE-Vision-Camera-Connection/m-p/1198767
I wonder how he has solved it.
And I am not sure that I understand what replier:Eric suggested ,Did he mean to copy the XML file(used in camera) to
the directory, ie C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\NI-IMAQdx\Data\XML?But now the software version I installed is Vision Acquisition 2010 August , NI-IMAQdx 3.7, No such similary directory is found!
Attachment is my xml!
I had the exact same problem last week. I went to update to VAS august 2010 and after I did it messed my system up and I kept getting the "unable to load xml file" error on my GigE camera. Some people suggested reinstalling your camera's firmware. Sadly enough, what worked for me was upgrading to a different version of the vision acquisition software. I used august 2009 instead and gave up on 2010.
edit: here's the post I made about it. Someone also suggested using the "camera file gnerator" which they linked.
Hope you can figure it out! I know how frustrating it was when I was getting this error.
Yes, I've got my camera working since then. But I was never able to update to VAS august 2010. I used the 2009 version instead and it has no problem with my xml file. Hopefully you don't have to downgrade and find a real solution. Also try reloading your camera's firmware by contacting your vendor. Good luck!
It is sad vendor is myself. Maybe I need to downgrade to 2009 vesion like you now,this has wasted me too much time!
Could you send me your xml file as refence.Thank you!
