Issue Details

I built a LabVIEW SoftMotion executable in Windows 10, which controls my compactDAQ (cDAQ) controller. When I run it from the development computer, everything works fine. When I try and deploy it to my cDAQ, I get the following message:

Exception Unknown 0xC06D007E 

What do I do?


This can occur because the compactDAQ controller may be missing software or it may be corrupted. 
Reinstall LabVIEW, SoftMotion, and the appropriate drivers to your cDAQ controller and redeploy.
