Issue Details

I am currently using a USRP-2901 on Windows 7 SP1. I have installed LabVIEW NXG 3.1 with NI-USRP 19.1. I am not able to identify my USRP device in NI-USRP Configuration Utility. 

Solution

This is a known issue that is resolved in NI-USRP 19.5. Refer to the NI-USRP 19.5 Readme to make sure your device, operating system, and software are compatible. 

If you are unable to upgrade, consider downgrading to the previous compatible version. Refer to the specific version of the NI-USRP Readme for compatibility information.

For example, LabVIEW NXG 3.1 is only supported by NI-USRP 19.0 and NI-USRP 19.1. If above issue is identified with NI USRP 19.1, downgrade to NI USRP 19.0.
