Issue Details

I created FPGA vi in EtherCAT chassis and compiled the code successfully. When I try to download the bit file into FPGA on the EtherCAT chassis, error -2147138273 occurs. What should I do ?

Solution

In order to download the bit file into FPGA on the EtherCAT chassis, the scan engine mode of connected cRIO chassis should be configuration mode. You can change the scan engine mode by right-clicking the cRIO chassis and select Utility -> scan engine mode.
Note that once you change the scan engine mode then you have to deploy it.

Additional Information

When you try to execute the FPGA code, the scan engine mode should be active mode and select deploy again.
