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


USB-8502 is NI-XNET device, so it is not compatible with NI-CAN. However, you can use NI-CAN APIs if you install NI-XNET driver with NI-XNET Compatibility Library for NI-CAN.
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.
