Issue Details

I would like to read the serial number of my PXI or PXIe controller in LabVIEW, is this possible?

Solution

It is not possible to programmatically read the serial number of a PXI or PXIe controller because this information is not exposed to the operating system. However, you can programmatically retrieve the serial number of PXI modules and PXIe chassis. 

Additional Information

Because the serial number of a PXI or PXIe controller is not exposed to the operating system, it is also not listed in the Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).
