Error with CDAQ Drivers or RealTime Drivers?

I am getting this error when I load my project. The CDAQs should appear anyways! But they do not. I installed everything on the CDS but I still cant figure out why these wont go. Heres my software installations:

Hi dhaugen92,


It seems that you have all the necessary software. I will double check this, meanwhile, check the NI License Manager and see if your software is properly licensed.


Also, do you see this problem in NI MAX or LabVIEW?

The problem was in LabVIEW only.

Ive found the solution - even though I already had daqmx drivers installed for all devices, it was necessary to include the Device Drivers DVD with the installation of real-time environment (which it prompts during the installation - i took this to mean it would install all the device drivers I already had installed). Once I included the device drivers in the installation, it solved the issue.


Very strange to have to re-install the device drivers for Real-Time environment when they are already installed... Not quite sure how that works under the hood.
