Issue Details

Despite my USB-5680 showing up correctly in MAX and in Windows Device Manager, it fails self test and doesn't behave correctly. 

Additionally, running shipping examples returns Error 1073807360 at ni568x Initialize With Option - IVI.vi

What is the cause and how can I correct this behavior?

Solution

This is commonly due to a corrupt or incorrect installation of the NI-568x driver. Performing an uninstall and forced reinstall should correct this problem.

This issue could also be caused by USB power limitations.  If seeing this problem with a USB HUB, it may not be providing enough power to the 568x.
 

Additional Information

If you're unsure of whether or not software installed correctly, this can be confirmed by checking the NI Installation Log Files on your machine.
