GetDeviceCount() returning 0 with python

Hi,

I’m just getting started using the FrontPanel API and for some reason python isn’t seeing my device. I’ve copied the 4 files into the local python directory as instructed in the manual. The FrontPanel program recognizes my device just fine and I have been using it to load my bitfiles up until now.

[CODE]>>> import ok

dev = ok.FrontPanel()
dev.GetDeviceCount()
0

[/CODE]

Relevant Information:
Board: XEM6001
API Ver: 4.0.8
Architecture: 64 bit
OS: Windows 7
USB 2.0

Thanks,

Is FrontPanel open? If so, then FrontPanel owns the device and your Python script can’t see it or access it.

Yup, that was the issue. Thanks!
