Product Reviews




Hello, After we got feedback on the error that "An unexpected error has occurred. Description: Application-defined or object-defined error.", we tried to use another laptop and install new software that you gave us. However we got another error that "An unexpected error has occurred. The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable." It also happened many times. In this case, what should we do solve the problem. Please tell us if there is any way. Thanks.

With Personal DAQView running on a Windows 7 or 8.0 (not 8.1) PC, with a PersonalDAQ/5x attached, you should be able to use the Channel Configuration dialog to acquire data from the device, directly to the screen. i.e. Set the Acquisition Configuration (Click View >> Acquisition Configuration…), Post Trigger, to stop on Duration of 100 scan, acquires 100. Click OK. Then click on Acquire>> Arm to start the scan. Does this work or show an error? OR perhaps are you running Personal DAQView Excel. If so, this software is not compatible with newer versions of Excel, such as those being newer than what was released at the time of Windows XP. Be sure Excel is not newer than Excel 2003. If still having an issue, please email to: techsupport@mccdaq.com

Hello, When we finished to record voltage of Power supply using Personal DaqView Plus, there was an error that "An unexpected error has occurred. Description: Application-defined or object-defined error". So, we couldn't record voltage. Also another error was followed, "Run-time error '-2147023174 (800706ba)' Automation error". It happened many times. I am wondering what the problem is and how to solve it. Thanks.

We do not have any other reports of this issue, so it could be something specific to your system. If the issue does not appear until attempting to save data to disk, check your access/administrative rights on the system. We recommend trying a different PC. Personal DAQView Plus is a mature product, and has been tested to work on Microsoft Operating systems up to Windows 8.0. Newer versions of Windows are not supported. The latest version of the Personal DAQView Plus software is 2.0.1.0. You can download it from the following link: http://www.mccdaq.com/downloads/iotech_software/PersonalDaq50_Series/pdaqviewsetup_x86_x64.exe

Is there any way to display the value of the peak hold indicator in the bar graph display? The indicator is nice but how can I see the actual measurement without the need for interpolation?

Hello RobSchnopolis - There is a simple remedy to the disabled indicators. First, close the Personal DaqView program. Next, located the Personal DaqView program on the Start→All Programs menu and this time, instead of using the left mouse button to start, use the right mouse button to open the menu. On the menu that appears choose “Run as administer”. You have to do this only once as Windows will remember the setting.
