List of Error Code Ranges for National Instruments Drivers

Updated May 3, 2018

Issue Details

Where can I find a list of error code ranges for National Instruments drivers?


Text files containing error codes specific to National Instruments software can beĀ found in the following locations:
  • For drivers and development packages, navigate to:
National Instruments\Shared\Errors
  • For Modular Instrument drivers, such as NI-SCOPE and NI-DMM, multiple language versions can be found in driver-specific folders located in:
 National Instruments\Shared\MIerrors

The driver-specific text files contain error codes arranged in order, and thus you can get the ranges for each driver.

Additional Information

Because error codes are continually added to National Instruments software a comprehensive list of error code ranges is not maintained, with the exception of LabVIEW. When you install National Instruments software like drivers and development packages a text file containing error codes specific to that software is installed on your system.
