Issue Details

I have a VI with various FieldPoint input and outputs, but am not receiving or sending any signals. I do not observer any errors. I have imported the IAK file that worked previously with this VI, but it still is not functioning properly.


The IAK file includes the FieldPoint's configuration. You will need to match the serial port's name to the port called by the configuration. For example, if the IAK file calls Port COM2, you will need to change the name of the serial port from your FieldPoint in Devices and Interfaces to COM2. You can change the serial port in NI MAX
