Issue Details

When using the System Explorer in VeriStand to configure my hardware setup, I try to discover my hardware using the Hardware Discovery Wizard. However, every time I go to launch the wizard I get the following error: Error -2147220611 occurred at nisyscfg.lvlib: Intialize (Helper).vi:3930001

How can I resolve this error?
