NI-CAN Error Codes

Overview

This article explains the error codes returned by an NI-CAN function.

Introduction

NI-CAN 2.x includes a small utility explain.exe, which is typically installed at C:\Program Files\National Instruments\NI-CAN\Utilities. Running this utility from the command line with the error code as a parameter will return a description of the error.

When using LabVIEW, a description of the error can be obtained by selecting Explain Error from the Help Menu. If using LabVIEW 8 or later, it is necessary to have a VI open for this menu option to be visible.

Attached, you will also find the latest error codes for NI-CAN 2.6 in portable document format (PDF) for English (EN), French (FR), German (DE) and Japanese (JP).
