Error -2147220609 When Setting up the LabVIEW RIO Evaluation Kit

Updated Jun 28, 2019

Issue Details

I've been trying to setup my the sbRIO included with the LabVIEW RIO Evaluation Kit but when using the National Instruments LabVIEW RIO Evaluation Setup Utility I get the below error:

Error -2147220609 occurred at nisyscfg.lvlib:Save Changes (System).vi
NI System Configuration:  (Hex 0x8004037F) A property contained a value that is not valid or is out of range.

How do I fix this?

Solution

This error occurs because there is no software installed on the sbRIO when it is first used.

You can install software on your RIO device by following the Install NI Software on Your CompactRIO Controller guide.
