Vimba: VmbErrorInvalidAccess (-6)

VmbErrorInvalidAccess (-6) is caused by the heartbeat timeout of the GigE camera. The camera heartbeat times out (default=6000 ms) while waiting at a break point in debug mode.


As Vimba doesn't support increasing the heartbeat timeout yet, please use the GigE SampleViewer for debugging:

As long as the HeartbeatTimeout feature is not implemented, you can also implement the direct register access for the GigE Vision Heartbeat Timeout register 0x0938 [in ms].



    std::vector<VmbUint64_t> address;


  std::vector<VmbUint64_t> data;


  VmbError_t errorType = m_pCam->WriteRegisters(address, data);
