Issue Details

I developed a VI that connects to a database to read and write data as needed. The VI works well on the development computer, however, when I move the VI to a different PC I get error -214746725 on the DB Tools Open Connection VI.


 

Solution

This error message usually means the computer does not have the necesary drivers or providers installed. You may need to check the documentation for your database software to find out which provider you need to install on the PC.

Additional Information

You can check the providers currently installed on your computer by navigating to Control Panel>> Administrative Tools>> Set up ODBC data sources>> Drivers
