Issue Details

I have connected my National Instruments hardware to my computer.  I am trying to configure my hardware in NI-MAX, but NI-MAX freezes after clicking "Devices and Interfaces."


Complete the following steps:
1. If your computer is connected to the internet then disable any network adapters and unplug any wired internet connections.
2. Close NI-MAX.
3. Plug your wired internet cable back into your computer.
4. Open NI-MAX.  Devices and Interfaces should now function properly.

If you are still experiencing problems please contact National Instruments Support.
