Issue Details

How to do I prevent CompactRIO hanging due to System Reset signal being set to TRUE?


To resolve this, you will have to make sure that System Reset IO is set back to FALSE after resetting the controller.


Additional Information

Setting the System Reset signal to TRUE will only reset the controller not the FPGA. The FPGA will still be running its code, therefore it is possible for the FPGA to constantly reset the controller.
