Issue Details

I am receiving the following error:

Error -XXXXXX occurred at an unidentified location
Possible reason(s):
Internal Software Error occurred in MIO software. Please contact National Instruments Support.

The following error codes may occur with this message: -224609, -223750, -225202, -225203.


  1. Perform a self-test on the device in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) by right-clicking on the device and selecting Self-Test.  If the device passes the self-test, verify the channels are functioning normally by utilizing Test Panels.
  2. Upgrade or reinstall your DAQmx driver.  If the data acquisition or signal conditioning cards that are giving the error are located in a remote system, ensure that the appropriate drivers are added to the remote controller as well.  It is possible that your driver has become corrupted and either a fresh install or upgrading the driver should resolve the issue.
  3. Check that there are no bent pins in the cDAQ chassis. Remove all cDAQ modules, and inspect connectors for any bent or broken pins. If there are bent pins, attempt to move them as straight as possible even if you are not using that slot. Reseat cDAQ modules and make sure it is not bending any pins.
