Issue Details

When running an example or FPGA VI using an FPGA target (CompactRIO, FlexRIO, R-Series Card), I get an error:

Error -61024 occurred at Open Dynamic Bitfile...Possible reason(s): LabVIEW FPGA: The device type that has been configured in this function does not match the actual type of the device.  

Why am I seeing this error and how can I get my VI up and running?


This error is often caused because the referenced FPGA bitfile (.lvbitx) was compiled for different hardware than you are currently using. To resolve this issue: Once this compiles, you should be able to change the code on your LabVIEW block diagram to point the Open Dynamic Bitfile to the newly compiled bitfile.
