Issue Details

I had DIAdem installed in a computer and I could open a data file in it. Ex MDF Data file. I needed to install DIAdem on another computer, and I can’t open my data file in DIAdem on this computer.


It may happen with some data files that are not native in DIAdem. So it is necessary to install the DataPlugin.
  1. Access ni.com/download and choose DataPlugins.
  2. Search for file or extension that you need. Ex: mdf3
  3. Download and install the DataPlugin.
  4. If there is not a DataPlugin, you can create a DataPlugin as described in Resources for Writing Your Own DataPlugin
