LabVIEW Bad Sync Packet

Greetings Fellow wizards.
Connecting with an arduino Uno for the first time, and I can’t get past the INIT VI. Looking at highlighted execution I see that it is stuck as shown in the attached jpeg.

Bad Sync Packet where it sits. The tx/rx LEDs are Flashing when I attempt this, and not when I don’t. The UNO is functional. I’ve tried the LabVIEW examples provided, and they do the same thing. I can’t find anything online that helps.

All I could find is when connection is successfully made the UNO will send the word “sync” back to the device, and it is not in this case.

Thanks! Rick
