MATRIX VISION - mvBlueFOX3 Technical Documentation
I cannot see the mvBlueFOX3 or I can see it but I cannot use it

A USB3 Vision camera is part of the bus or system to which it is connected. Like other devices (e.g. PCIe card, mouse, etc.) a USB3 Vision device is bound to the system via a driver. Because a device can only be bound to one driver in the system, it could be possible that the mvBlueFOX3 is bound to another USB3 Vision driver which is available on the system.

In this case it can be possible that you cannot see the mvBlueFOX3 using the MATRIX VISION tools like wxPropView or you can see it but you cannot use it. A dialog like the following might appear:

Figure 1: Unreachable devices

However, you can change the bounding using the Windows "Device Manager":

Note
Please be sure, that you have already installed the mvGenTL_Acquire driver.
  • Open the "Device Manager" from "Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager".
    On this system, the mvBlueFOX3 is bound to the "NI Acquisition Device" driver

  • Right-click the device and select "Update Driver Software...".
  • Click on "Browse my computer for driver software":
