Device or Module Found in MAX but Not in DAQExpress

Updated May 2, 2019

Reported In


  • DAQExpress 1.0
  • DAQExpress 2.0
  • DAQExpress 3.0
  • DAQExpress 3.1
  • DAQExpress 3.2


  • NI-DAQmx 17.0

Issue Details

I installed DAQExpress and NI-DAQmx and am able to see my device in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX). However, it is unable to be detected or recognized in DAQExpress. Why isn't my device or module showing up in DAQExpress?


Although DAQExpress installs and uses DAQmx, it does not necessarily support the same devices. Please refer to the DAQExpress Manual to see what devices are supported. 

Additional Information

If you are using a CompactDAQ chassis, be aware that the only chassis supported by DAQExpress are cDAQ-9171, cDAQ-9174, cDAQ-9178, and cDAQ-9179.
