Issue Details

I have a system that was previously working. When I try to run the code now, the following error occurs.

Error -229770 occurred at DAQmx Create

Possible reason(s):

Internal Software Error occurred in MIG software. Please contact National Instruments Support.



There is chance that the VI, project, or software in use have become corrupted. Follow the steps below to address possible software corruption.
  1. Create a task in NI MAX to check if the error occurs independently of LabVIEW.
  2. If the error does not appear when using a task in NI MAX, recreate a smaller version of the original VI in a new file separate from any existing projects
  3. If the error does not appear in the new VI, the old VI/project could be corrupted
  4. If the error does appear in the new VI, LabVIEW could be corrupted and a force reinstall of LabVIEW and then NI-DAQmx could resolve the error.
