ANT+ DLL doesn't work in LabVIEW

Issue Details

I have downloaded the ANT+ DLL and whenever I try to use it to connect to my device it does not work. No errors are thrown but the confirmation booleans are not returning the correct values which let me know the call was completed. 

Solution

The ANT+ DLL is not directly referenced for LabVIEW as written. In order to interface with an ANT+ device you should consider using the ANT+ Toolkit. This toolkit wraps the ANT+ functions for LabVIEW and makes the devices easy to use. 
You may also consider using Serial/VISA commands to format specific ANT+ messages and send them directly to the device.
