Issue Details

I am trying to use a USRP RIO device connected via ethernet to my computer but, I getting the error -1074118607 on LabVIEW. How can I solve it?
niUSRP Open Rx<ERR>The FPGA version is incompatible with this version of host code. Update the image on the USRP device using the NI-USRP Configuration Utility.


To solve this issue, follow the steps bellow:

1. Launch the NI-USRP Configuration Utility. (It is installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\NI-USRP\utilities)

2. Check that the USRP is detected by the NI-USRP Configuration Utility by clicking in Refresh Device List:

It is not detected, check your IP address according to What is the Default IP Address of my USRP RIO Device?

3. Select the N2xx/NI-29xx Image Updater tab, as you can see is necessary update the FPGA image. 

4. Update the FPGA image as reccomended in the document: How to Update Firmware and FPGA Images for the NI 292x and N2xx USRP
