Error 12 Some System Capacity Not Enabled in LabVIEW

Issue Details

I am trying to open a DLL using the Call Library Function Node in LabVIEW. Every time I run my code I see the error message "LabVIEW: Some system capacity necessary for operation is not enabled." What does this error code mean?


This error will occur when an inappropriate file type is used as an input parameter for the Call Library Function Node, which is meant to open shared libraries or dynamic link libraries (DLL).

As an example, this Call Library Function Node has a .INI file as the file path to the DLL to be opened. 

To resolve this issue, change the "path in" parameter or "Library name or path" parameter on the configure screen, to a .DLL file type
