Issue Details

In Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX), I am getting an error that states No VISA resources found under My System. When I try to access my VISA devices, I am unable to access them and I get the same error No VISA resources found. However, they show up under My System in MAX. What can I do to resolve this issue?

Solution

This issue is caused by a corrupted NI-VISA installation. You will need to uninstall NI-VISA and reinstall. If possible, install the latest version of NI-VISA. This should resolve the issue.
If this procedure do not solve the problem please contact NI Support.
