Issue Details

I am using a third-party USB-Serial adapter in my application. When I call VISA Configure Serial, I receive Error -1073807298: Could not perform operation because of I/O error. How can I resolve this issue?



This issue can be caused because some third party devices do not support all serial settings on  VISA Configure Serial Port VI. Instead use a VISA property node to set only the supported properties.

To determine which properties are unsupported by your USB-Serial adapter consult your third-party hardware manuals and/or contact the device manufacturer.
