Issue Details

When running a NI-XNET example using a database imported from Vector, I get the error:
NI-XNET: (Hex 0xBFF63163) You used and empty name for an XNET database object.


Solution

The error is related to Frames having empty or no signals. To fix this, use the XNET Database Editor to edit the frames. 

Alternatively you can convert the database to a xml format and edit the frames from an xml editor. 

Additional Information

If you create a database using the XNET Database Editor, it'll automatically assign a bit to any new signal added to a frame. This avoids the error described in this article.
