Issue Details

I set up a named USB-8451 in NI MAX, and the unit shows up under 'Devices and Interfaces' in NI MAX. When I choose that name in my LabVIEW application, however, it returns code -301713 Property Node (arg 2). How can I address this?


  • Verify that the device driver for the NI-845X  is installed
  • There may be an invalid property you are setting to the device. If you have previously used the USB-8452 device, for example, its property, I^2C Pullup, can be defined as TRUE or FALSE, but this is not the case for the USB-8451 (accepts FALSE state only). Verify that the properties you're setting align with valid values based on the device manual
