Software

  • Switch Executive
  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Issue Details

I am trying to import a virtual device from an old system and NI Switch Executive raises the following error:

 

“An error has occurred while attempting to access device SwitchDeviceName.

 

Primary Error: (Hex 0Xbffa1207) The item does not exist in the collection.

Elaboration: IviConfigServer.IviLogicalNameCollection.1: get_item failed. SwitchDeviceName does not exist in the collection.” 

Solution

In NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (MAX), under Devices and Interfaces, make sure that the name of the virtual device in the new system matches the name in the old system.
