PCI-6704 External Calibration Password - Reset

Error executing DAQmxInitExtCal function with PCI-6704 using NIDAXMx 19.6

Excuting DAQmxInitExtCal function receive the error DAQmxErrorIncorrectPassword.

The default ‘NI’ password does not work, is it possible to reset back to the default password?


int32 DAQmxInitExtCal (const char deviceName[], const char password[], uInt32 *calHandle);

This issue appears to be a DAQmx version problem.

The Ext Calibration function with the default NI password works fine in earlier DAQmx drivers but fails with a password (errorDAQmxErrorIncorrectPassword) when using the DAQmx version 19 or 20.
