Issue Details

I'm using the Create Rendezvous VI in my application but it gives me the following error when trying to run:

Error 1 occurred at Create ,

Possible reason(s):

LabVIEW:  An input parameter is invalid. For example if the input is a path, the path

might contain a character not allowed by the OS such as ? or @.
NI-488:  Command requires GPIB Controller to be Controller in Charge.


This error can appear if you are setting the "return existing (F)" terminal to true and you haven't specified a name for the rendezvous. 

Change this input to false and the VI will generate the rendezvous if none have been created.
