ID Known Issue
216736

Return
Model time for an MDL is incorrect
Model time for an MDL is incorrect

Workaround: Use a Clock block wire to an outport in your model. Then use that output as the time.

222544

Return
Clicking stop on a model control linked to an MDL causes NI VeriStand to crash
If you click the stop button of a model control that is mapped to an MDL, NI VeriStand crashes.

Workaround: Don't click stop in the model. Instead, stop the simulation from NI VeriStand.

339518

Return
XNET Device Driver fails to deploy after formatting controller
After deploying a Veristand system definition containing XNET if the controller is reformatted but the system definition is unchanged subsequent deployments will fail with an error similar to "NI VeriStand: The specified Device Driver VI was not found at the following path: C:\ni-rt\NIVeriStand\XNET\NI-XNET.llb\NI-XNET.vi"

Workaround: Change the system definition such that it needs to be saved. Save and re-deploy the system definition.

Reported Version: 2011    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 07/20/2012
321998

Return

Workaround: Reduce CPU usage on the gateway computer or stream fewer waveforms.

Reported Version: 2012    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/04/2014
386381

Return
The Pulse Measurement task may return incorrect data
In certain configurations where the signal is disconnected or has a 0/100% duty cycle, the Pulse Measurement task may report invalid readings. The returned reading of the disconnected signal will be the last non 0/100% duty cycle processed by your device.

Workaround: Install NI DAQmx 9.7 drivers

392092

Return
Error -200452 occurs when a 433x device uses hardware timed single point
If a 433x device is set as the master or if there is only a 433x device in a system definition, using hardware timed single point will cause error -200452 to occur during deployment.

Workaround: Use at least one other device in the system definition

Reported Version: 2012    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/04/2014
402293

Return
Model files imported to VeriStand with vector channels appear as Nx1 rather than 1xN
Model files imported to VeriStand with vector channels appear as Nx1 rather than 1xN making it impossible to map to the channel correctly.

Workaround: Use the channel mappings dialog to import from a text file instead of using the dialog.

Reported Version: 2012    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/04/2014
422005

Return
VeriStand does not allow multiple databases for a single XNET Port

481040

Return
Custom device tree operations within action VI on load fail with error 1088
Attempting to do any tree operations inside a custom device action VI on load causes an error 1088. The error occurs because the tree has not been drawn yet and these tree operations cause system explorer to attempt to update the non-existent tree.

Workaround: N/A

Reported Version: 2010    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/04/2014
526455

Return
Unable to apply higher-order calibration polynomial coefficients at run-time
Given a system that uses N coefficients to describe a calibration equation, any additional coefficients- beyond the N initially declared- will not be immediately applied to the desired channel.

Workaround: Undeploy the system. The subsequent deployment will apply the previously-entered calibration coefficients.
