Error: "The NI-RIO software on the remote..."

When I run code, I get the following error in the Messages pane of the FRC Driver Station application:

The NI-RIO software on the remote system is not compatible with the local NI-RIO software

I’m using Windriver. Does anyone know what might cause this? The only problem we’re having right now (aside from this error message) is that we tend to loose robot communication for a few seconds periodically.


You would receive such error message is your cRio image version does not match the Wind River update or vice versa.

Basically, you should reimage your cRio using the v19 image and get the Wind River Update installed.

That should fix your problem.
