Issue Details

I have a GigE Camera connected to my PC but it does not show up con a IMAQdx Session control on a LabVIEW Executable. I can see and test the camera in NI MAX.


Make sure you have the appropriate Run Time Licenses activated when using an LabVIEW Executable that includes vision acquisition and vision processing functions. Once activated, your camera should show up in the IMAQdx Session Control.
