NI-FBUS Process Startup: Fatal Error while opening NI-FBUS Communication Manager

Hello experts

I am using Windows Xp, I installed PCI-FBUS card, NI-FBUS COMM SW for Windows v 3.2.1 and activated all the licenses as well as allowed the PCI-FBUS board in Configuration Utility. 

I received the following error message, when I opened NI-FBUS Communication Manager:

"NI-FBUS Process Startup: Fatal Error

Initialize request to Board 0 timed out, NI-FBUS may not be receiving interrupts from board.  Check your board IRQ settings with the NI-FBUS interface configuration utility.  NI-FBUS will not Exit."

But all the settings were in default.  Just NI-FBUS Communication Manager will run successfully if an H1 interface board property is keep in "Polled Mode." 

What should I do? Please help.

Thanks a lot.

Hello Carol,

According to the developers of the NI-FBUS 3.2, the error you are getting has been said to be a history problem. What happens is that when windows operating system gets upgraded to a version like XP are other latest versions like windows 7, its IRQ mode is never suggested to use any more.

So what happened is that the developers got rid of the IRQ supporting mode from the IRQ NI-FBUS. What you will therefore need to do as a remedy to that problem is use the poll mode in the NI-FBUS software instead. That will get rid of the error you are getting right now.

Regards,

Carl
