As the error suggests, this is the result of a bad installation, and repairing your MAX installation is recommended. To do this, go to Control Panel >> Add or Remove Programs
(Windows XP) or Control Panel>>Programs and Features
(Windows 7) and select National Instruments Software
in the list.
This will open a new dialog box. In the new dialog box, select NI Measurement & Automation Explorer
from the list, and click the Repair
option on the right hand side.Note:
When running a repair, you will need to have the disk/media for the original installation available.
If the repair is unsuccessful, the next step is to run a full uninstall/reinstall of MAX. MAX is typically bundled with other NI Software and is not available as it's own download. The System Configuration download
is a good option in this case. It is highly recommended that you are logged in as an administrator when installing the software.Note:
In certain cases a force reinstall
may be warranted.
After the repair completes, restart your computer, and launch MAX to check if it works properly.
