Error - 10401 occurred at AO Group Config

Error - 10401 occurred at AO Group Config

Hi,
 
I am very new to LabView.
 
I have a .vi that was created in LV 6.0 that I'd like to run with LV Express 7.1.  When I try to run the .vi in 7.1, I get a message that reads "Error - 10401 occurred at AO Group Config." 
 
I was able to find the device under Devices and Interfaces: NI-DAQmx Devices: PCI-6221L "Dev1" in the Measurement and Automation Explorer.  I changed the properties to include the BNC-2110 box and the self test is successful.  The test panels, however, are not successful.  I have also tried converting the Traditional NI-DAQ configuration to the NI-DAQmx configuration.  When doing this, and am asked to confirm that each traditional device corresponds to a NI-DAQmx device, there are no devices listed.  (I'm not sure though if this applies to what I am doing??)
 
In any case, I'd really appreciate some help and guidance!
 
Thanks,
Nancy.

Hi,
 
I think you might be mixing the two things together, which is a definitely understandable.
The board, PCI-6221, is only supported by the DAQmx driver (LabVIEW 7.x version driver) - This is why you get an error from AO Group Config. vi, which is a call to the traditional daq driver.
 
When you say that the Test Panel fails, what do you mean? Do you get an error or are you not measuring as expected?
 
See the following link for help on how to reprogram your code using DAQmx instead of Trad DAQ:

Also I would check out the DAQmx examples found using the Examples Finder in LabVIEW.
