Issue Details

I want to download and install NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX), but I cannot find the file anywhere. Where can I find this software?


NI MAX cannot be downloaded by itself. It is included with all National Instruments drivers (NI-VISA, NI-DAQmx, etc.), and in the NI System Configuration Full package. Installing the latest version of any driver or of NI System Configuration will automatically install the latest version of NI MAX.

The NI System Configuration Full package contains NI MAX, the System Configuration API, and the NI Network Browser. It is the closest to a direct download for MAX. Download the latest version of NI System Configuration here. You will need the full version instead of the NI System Configuration Run-Time download.

Additional Information

Before upgrading any drivers, make sure your hardware is compatible with the new version of the driver. This information can usually be found in the driver's readme file, and sometimes in other convenient charts like NI-DAQmx and LabVIEW Compatibility.
