DMic,

 

What example are you using? Can you post a screenshot of the error you are getting and one of your Project Explorer Window? This information would be very helpful for troubleshooting.

Hey DMic,

 

Where did you download the example from? It seems to be missing the VISA resource. See image below of the Simple Serial example that ships with LabVIEW.

Can you add a VISA Resource name control and set that to your source and try that out?

Oh sorry. I used Com1 as resource. But the error was same then i deleted the resource wire. Still same error. I am confused whether the visa resource in target should be same as of when we run in host pc.

DMic,

 

You should use the name of the VISA resource that is listed under your controller in NI MAX. It will not work if you do not have the VISA resource wired in. 

 

If you do not see the VISA resource listed in NI MAX under your controller, make sure that you have NI VISA and Serial installed on your controller.

 

Can you post screenshots of what NI MAX sees and make sure that all of the tabs under your Chassis and Controller are expanded out?
