Windows power management modes terminate any NI-DMM operation in progress

Windows power management modes, such as sleep, standby, and hibernate terminate any NI-DMM operation in progress. Notice that in Windows 7/Vista or on a laptop computer, the default power management settings are likely to enable sleep mode.

Workaround:

NI recommends that you disable Windows power management modes, such as sleep, standby, and hibernate.

Replacing the PCI/PXI-4060 with the PCI/PXI-4065 or PCI/PXI-4070/4071/4072 in an application that uses triggering

The PCI/PXI-4060 configured as an SCXI controller automatically sets the Measurement Complete (MC) destination to the location where SCXI is configured (external or internal PXI/SCXI trigger lines). However, the PCI/PXI-4065 and PCI/PXI-4070/4071/4072 configured as an SCXI controller automatically sets the MC destination to NONE.

Workaround:

If your application relies on the routing behavior of the PCI/PXI-4060 by not explicitly calling niDMM Configure Measurement Complete Destination, you must modify your application by calling the VI/function. Alternately, the PCI/PXI-4065 and PCI/PXI-4070/4071/4072 can emulate PCI/PXI-4060 routing behavior by specifying the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\National Instruments\NI-DMM\CurrentVersion\legacyMCRoute

where the value is a DWORD set to 1.

Note: For Windows 7 (64-bit) and Vista (64-bit), specify the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\National Instruments\NI-DMM\CurrentVersion\legacyMCRoute

Without this registry key, NI-DMM sets NIDMM_ATTR_MEAS_COMPLETE_DEST to NONE for the PCI/PXI-4065 and PCI/PXI-4070/4071/4072. With this registry key, NI-DMM sets NIDMM_ATTR_MEAS_COMPLETE_DEST to the location where SCXI communication is configured in the application.

In the documentation, the MAX "Configure" button is inaccurately labeled with its former name, "Properties."

In the device documentation, including the Getting Started Guide and Help file, the MAX "Configure" button is inaccurately labeled with its former name, "Properties."

Workaround:

When the documentation instructs you to select the "Properties" button, you should select the "Configure" button.

Function traces in NI IO Trace are duplicated when monitoring or debugging device

Function traces in NI IO Trace are duplicated either using a device with Debug Driver Session enabled for using breakpoints in C/C++/.NET applications or monitoring an in-use device with the Soft Front Panel.

Workaround:

Select the first two of the two identical traces in NI IO Trace. Limit the traces to those only in the same process as the one selected by selecting View>>Only This Process.

No device names appear when initializing a session with NI-DMM on LinuxRT

When selecting a resource name with niDMM Initialize.vi or niDMM Initialize With Options.vi in LabVIEW with a LabVIEW version prior to 21.0 on an NI Linux Real-Time target, the drop-down menu for selecting resources appears empty and you cannot select a device that is in your system.


Workaround:

Manually enter the resource name for the device you want to use. Use MAX or NI System Configuration software to retrieve the resource name for any devices in the system.
