RIO Device Setup Utility "Download Bitfile" Button Not Working

Hi guys,


I'm trying to load/download a bitfile into my RIO device (PXI-7811R). However, after setting the bitfile directory, the "Download Bitfile" button is disabled (gray out).


I would appreciate for any help and support towards this issue of mine. Thanks

Yes, I did. Any idea what's the NIRSER version 17.1 drivers. I can't find anything about it online.

I believe it stands for "NI R Series" Multifunction RIO driver.

Also, noticed that the PXI-7811R is in the "Obsolete" lifecycle and the latest version of LabVIEW the hardware is compatible with is the LabVIEW 2018 SP1.

What version of LabVIEW are you using? 

You can look up
software compatibility with this hardware bellow (can find it here as well).
