Issue Details

I have a PXI chassis with an MXI controller in which I have several PXI cards. However, some of them appear in the Measurement and Automation Explorer labeled as the VISA resource instead of the slot number. 

How can I correct this?


In order to solve this:

1) Power down the computer. 
2) Power down the PXI chassis. 
3) Power up the PXI chassis. 
4) Power back on the computer. 


Additional Information

If there is an R-Series card that is labeled with the VISA resource, you might not be able to add this FPGA target to a LabVIEW project
