Troubleshoot

The driver execution status can be observed through the diagnostic tools, which are:

  • Trace window
  • Property Watch
  • Module Information

A status value of 0 (zero) means the communication is a success. Negative values indicate an internal driver error and positive values mean there are protocol errors.
