Error obtaining firmware version

I am working on production test support and from time to time there is an error as stated below.  I am using LabVIEW to control the Stand Alone Flash Programmer using ActiveX to program a BlackFin 561 processor.  We are running anywhere from 10 to 50 boards per day and from time to time, this error comes up.  Once the steps in the error message are followed, we can continue to run test.  The error occurs when the program tries to connect to the device.

 

What causes this error and how can it be avoided?

 

 

Error Message

Could not obtain the firmware version.  Please shut down the application, cycle power on the emulator, and try again.
