NI VeriStand - Get Single Channel Value

Hello everyone
I want to read an NI VeriStand Workspace channel via LabView. The hardware for this is on an NI PXI system.
I can't read the channel with the VI shown, what could be the fault? I get error 1172 in the "Open Workspace Manager Reference" Block.
Can you tell me where the error lies, or is there good guidance for making the project working?

What PXI are you using?

You need to download the users manual and need to correct your remote connection options.

i have the PXIe-1082 Chassis with a PXIe-8880 Controller.

Are there some informations about this in the users manual?

Where can I setup the remote connection options?


Thanks and Best regards.

Thanks for the links. But i still don't understand what settings i should make and where. I have been working with the PXI system remote via VeriStand for almost 2 years, so where should I make settings on the remote options? Also in the manuals I do not find suitable topics for it.
Thank you for your help

Here is another a link of Getting started for PXIe-8880.


In documents you need check out, that the remote connection options in NI MAX are correct and if needed correct them.

Sorry, but I do not have installed connected and installed any device, so I can't send you a screenshot.

The previous link was incorrect, here is what I wanted to send.

Read carefully the documents, there are all explanations and sequence of installing and configuring the devices with it's drivers and softwares.
