Reading binary data from a PNA-x N5245A

Good morning

I am new to this forum and hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I am trying to obtain data from a N5245A PNA-X using Labview 2011 over Ethernet.

I found this forum and downloaded a program called PNA Binary Data Read (posted Oct 31, 2011)  and 
was able to get it running.  Did just what I was looking for, great little program.  But when I try running it the second time
all I get back for data is zero's.  It uses the viScanf to format the data from the analyzer.  

In order to get this to work again, I need to close out Labview and restart it before the program is able to collect and display the data again. 
I am new to using VISA and can't figure out why this only works one time.

Do I need to reset something before I rerun the program each time?

Thanks
