Pico 3026D Labview Error 5078

Post by mackerman1 » Tue Apr 25, 2017 4:56 pm


I am using a Picoscope 3026D and running 32-bit labview 2016. I have copied the ps3000a.dll driver into the labview 2016/resource folder, following the Youtube video instructions to initialize the scope with 3000aExampleBlock program. However, the error 5078 PICO_FPGA_FAIL error occurs and the program automatically stops.

I am able to run picoscope using Picoscope 6 software and close the software prior to using Labview. No other labview programs are running during this process.

What can I do to attempt to remedy this error?

Hi Matt,

If you have installed the PicoSDK, it should not be necessary to copy the dlls into the resource folder.

It might be worth copying the ps3000a.dll and PicoIpp.dll (rename this to picoipp.dll) files to the lib folder in the SDK installation directory (see this post).
