View Full Version : Problem with DBK 41BU02 and Labview

February 20, 2012, 08:48:51

i have a DNK 41BU02 USB-camera and a computer with windows 7 (32 bit) on it. The camera works correctly when i use ic-campture or the programs in ic imaging control 3.1 folder. i want to develop a labview (2010) program but, when i open the ic control in the front pannel, labview shuts down.
what should i do?

Good Morning!

We tested LabVIEW 2009 in a higher Windows than XP and found the same problem you found. The error is caused by Visual Studio 2003 ATL, which was used for the IC Imaging Control ActiveX. You can workaround by opening a command line as administrator and type:

bcdedit /set nx AlwaysOff

Then reboot.

To restore the setting, if you do want to use it, type

bcdedit /set nx OptIn

Then reboot.

We considered to use the IC Imaging Control .NET component instead of the ActiveX control, but then we will loose LabVIEW 7 compatibility. Also exchanging the ActiveX against the .NET component is like programming the LabVIEW Extension completely new, even if all methods and properties are the same, because of the LabVIEW concept and its limitations.

You may look here for more information about bcdedit: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709667%28WS.10%29.aspx

An alternative to this is trying a newer version of the ActiveX control. Please create a support case, so I can send a download link (http://www.imagingcontrol.com/support/case/)
