Issue Details

I am trying to run a test suite to test my PCD. However, upon running the setups I receive the following error, "Error TSPreconditionException : Precondition error: Lower Test has not Target Passive mode license". 

Why am I receiving this error?


In order to test a PCD (reader), the Contactless Test Station is required to emulate a card. This requires an additional firmware license which is not present if you are receiving this error.

Please contact your NI sales representative in order to upgrade the firmware on your instrument to enable you to run the test suite.
