Issue Details

I set aliases for my databases in the NI-XNET Database Editor. Where are the NI-XNET Database aliases stored on my computer? 


XNET aliases and the associated file paths are stored in an XML file on disc. The filename is nixnetAlias.xml, and the file path is C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\NI-XNET. If you are unable to find it here, you can search your C drive for nixnetAlias.xml.
