LabVIEW: An Input Parameter is Invalid

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi TechyV community,

I'm using LabView Real-Time Module Version 2009 SP-1.

Hope somebody can get me past this error that I get every time I run the get target information.

I'm at the end of my rope.

Any idea to help me with this would be great.

Possible reason(s):

LabVIEW: An input parameter is invalid. For example if the

LabVIEW: An Input Parameter is Invalid



The error says the RT Get Target Information (MAC).VI:1.

Therefore, according to that MAC address must be input in hexadecimal format without the semicolons.

In order to input the MAC address in hexadecimal format under the conditions mentioned above;

  • First, right click on the string input to the MAC address input.
  • A menu will appear.
  • From that, Hex Display should be selected (fourth option counting from the very bottom of the menu).
  • The MAC address can then be inserted without the semicolons.

Hence, the RT controller's information can then be accessed by its MAC address.

And Hopefully, the problem is solved!
