Issue Details

While trying to use NI SCOPE API's in LabVIEW, I get a NI VISA Resource Error 1073807343 similar to the one shown:
Communicating with my card work with in the soft front panel, and if I even use the NI SCOPE Express VI in LabVIEW, I can click into the VI, and communicate with it.


There are many things that this issue can be, but a common thing to check is to see if you are using a compatible version of LabVIEW with NI SCOPE and your Operating System , and NI Scope with your Operating System . Ensure that all three are compatible, or else this error will be thrown.
