Issue Details

My DMM PXIe-4080 throws error -1074102163 every time I access it, either by LabVIEW code or its soft front panel. 


This error refers to potential corruption in the NI-DMM Driver.

Perform a repair on the NI-DMM driver to fix any corruption and ensure there are no missing files preventing it from functioning as expected.

Additional Information

In case you observe this error in connection with a PXI chassis that is connected to a PC via MXI , please refer to the MXI Compatibility and Connectivity Troubleshooting Guide  for further troubleshooting steps.

If the system is powered by a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), you can try to a add a delay to turn on the PC a few seconds later.
