GPIB-USB B trouble after Labview crash

I have some trouble with the GPIB-USB NI interface. It works perfectly until my Labview program crashes (which is not the first time and certainly not the last). I need to kill by Windows the labview task.
Then I could not manage to detect again  the GPIB-USB (none of the two leds on the interace works), of course MAX doesn't see the interface, even after reboot.
Any idea how to manage to un-crash the system ?

Have you tried to reinstall or repair the drivers?
If you try to plug your device on another USB port, the behavior is the same?

Thanks for your help,
Yes I re-install (x4) driver and NI Labview, MAX, ....
If I change the USB port, the behavior is the same
It seems to be be very sensitive to accidental unplug of the GPIB-USB interface from the computer.
It seems also be sensitive to LAbview crash. In fact after LAbview crash, it doesn't manage to reset the vi so I have to kill the windows task, then the driver doesn't seem to work correctly and I have to re-install every thing (NI488, MAx...) which is very ennoying.
Have you any idea on the VI reset conducts by Labview ?

Hello Stephane,
I got no Idea on the origin of that strange behavior.
Is there a message returning when LabVIEW crashes or something like that?

How do I create Labview VISA ports for *individual* GPIB instruments using Prologix USB GPIB controller?
Hello, I'm trying to use a Prologix USB GPIB controller to control GPIB instruments, and I would like to have a virtual serial (VISA) port for *each instrument*, as is the case with a normal GPIB controller with a standard NI driver. However this is not what the Prologix driver provides -- it provides a single VISA virtual serial port for the entire controller. To address the instrument with GPIB address 11, you first send "++addr 11" to the serial port, and then you're talking to instrument 11. However, this means I have to change all old Labview programs. Is it possibl...

Labview 7 crashes when opening an earlier Labview version VI
Hello guys. I am using Labview 7 professional edition. The labview crashes when opening an earlier labview version VI. The error message I'm getting is just "Labview has encounted a problem and eneds to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Why is my GPIB interface dead after installing LabView 6.1 when upgrading from LabView 6.0.2
We installed LV6.1 on our Win2000 machine. GPIB interface no longer works. We had been using LV6.0.2. Did you try to use MAX to check your GPIB interface? Click "F5" to Refresh the system if you can't see the GPIB interface. If you can see the it, try to run NI 488.2 Troubleshooting Wizard under Help->Troubleshooting to test the interface. Bill Yes, I used MAX. The GPIB card shows up there. So does the GPIB instrument. I tried to test the interface with the communicate with device button. The query just timed out. We un-installed the GPIB card and then re-installed i...

Re: LabVIEW and LabVIEW RT?
Hello Iman, I will try to illustrate it with an example since it all will depend on the type of application you would like to implement. Let's say you would like to implement an application where you log data, maybe exchange data with databases and you acquire a bunch of data points at a time not performing any type of control and where high determinism is&nbsp;not needed. In this case LabVIEW for Windows work great. If you on the other hand would like to implement a closed-loop application where you need high determinism and reliability and will acquire data point by point you would u...

Labview crashing

Crash LabVIEW
In the zip file are two vi's. The "Crash LabVIEW.vi" vi&nbsp;uses a subpanel to open the other&nbsp;vi "just a while loop.vi". When the stop button is pressed on "Crash LabVIEW.vi", it sends the data to the stop button on the&nbsp;"just a while loop.vi". It works fine, but read the comments in the "Crash LabVIEW.vi". It was a simple mistake, but still no error message, nothing, just LabVIEW disappearing off the screen and off the task manager... I guess you can't compare apples and oranges, even though LabVIEW will let you t...

can LabView talk to USB devices by PC USB?
We have USB hardware that connects to the PC via the USB port which I would control by LV. Does a pll is exiting for this type of application? I am far from being quaified to answer this, but I can tell you this much. Due to the low level nature of USB, LabVIEW has no way of talking to a generic USB device. If the devices is one of the standard classes (Human Interface Device for example), then there are Win32 functions you can call - although I have no clue where these are located. If not, you almost always need drivers for the device which provide custom DLLs. If you do not have this th...

How to save in labview 7, from labview 8
Need to open my LV 8 VI in LV7, due to different plattforms... &nbsp; How do I make it possible? Hi, You will have to save out your VI&nbsp;using LabVIEW 8 first, select the Save with options. Then you can select the previous version, which probably is 7.1. ( You will have to repeat the procedure using LV7.1) If you have used any of the new functions and featured in your VI(s), then these will be lost when you save backwards.
