Issue Details

I am using IMAQ to control a camera. When I attempt to initialize it using the IMAQ API, I receive the following error:
Error -1074397163 occurred at IMAQ Init.vi 
The passed interface or session is invalid.


What have I done wrong?

Solution

This error code can occur if you use the wrong set of drivers. The different versions are IMAQ, IMAQdx, and IMAQ I/O. Which one you must use will depend on your camera. Please see Differences Between NI-IMAQ, NI-IMAQdx, and NI-IMAQ I/O to understand which version that is the correct choice for your camera.
