Issue Details

When I run a VISA application in LabVIEW using VISA, I get the following error:

Error - 1073807202 occurred at Property Node (arg 1) in>

Possible Reason(s):

LabVIEW: (Hex 0xBFFF009E) VISA or a code library required by VISA could not be located or loaded. This is usually due to a required driver not being installed on the system.
This Error is shown in the following dialog box.


  • Reinstalling the latest version of NI-VISA should solve the issue. 
  • If reinstalling the NI-VISA still does not work, you can reformat the PC and try again. Alternatively, you can install the driver to another PC and copy the visa32.dll into the following folder.
    • For Windows 64bit C:\Windows\System32
    • For Windows 32bit C:\Windows\SysWOW64
