Issue Details

I am using a USB-8502 and USB-8473. I am trying to run an old application that uses NI-CAN, and I get the following error:
 
Error -1074388723 occurred at NI-CAN Configure 
CAN Object

Solution

USB-8502 is not compatible with NI-CAN, only NI-XNET. If you want the code to run on an XNET device, the best course of action is to migrate the code from NI-CAN to NI-XNET

Also make sure that you are not using the Channel API when using a USB CAN device, because USB CAN devices can only use the Frame API. Because of this, using the Channel API with the USB-8473 would cause an error as well
