Issue Details

I have a Real-Time (RT) Controller in a PXI chassis that contains DAQ cards. When I open up NI MAX and click on any of my NI-DAQmx Global Virtual Channels I receive Error -88716. I started receiving this error after I installed patches. How do I resolve this error?

Solution

This error is due to a mismatch in the DAQmx driver versions on the host computer and remote target.To resolve this error:
  1. Open up NI MAX and find your RT target under Remote Systems
  2. Click on the "+" sign next to the name of your RT target to show all folders that belong to your RT target
  3. Right-click the Software folder and select Add/Remove Software
  4. Find the DAQmx driver in the list of software and check for any conflicts   between software versions
  5. If there is a conflict, install the correct version of DAQmx so that they match on the host and target machines

 

Additional Information

Note: You will get the same message for any device (for example a serial device) whose driver versions are different on the host PC and on the RT target.
