I'm getting this error when downloading to MD5:

Trying to download software using NI 8473 but seems to error before even establishing connection with the display. I noticed the MD5 does not have built in resistor and I have not installed one as yet, could this affect the download from PC?

Thank you for including information about the CAN adapter, that makes it clear what the issue is. It is not related to the new module, but to version 7 being used with an old CAN adapter. 


The old NI USB-8473 only works up to version 6 due to only having 32-bit drivers.

See compatibility info IQANdesign 7 released / Software / IQAN

Ok thanks, my NI adaptor will be laid to rest now! 


Interestingly I was pretty sure I was unable to load software into the controller direct from IQAN Design using Kvaser either (pretty sure I had the same message), but after using Kvaser adaptor and loading via IQAN Run, comms through IQAN Design now works as expected. Not sure if it was because it was a fresh module, maybe I got muddled up somewhere.
