Issue Details

I installed a driver from online, but it doesn't show up in NI MAX even though the installation was successful. Did it install properly? What should I do?


If you run into this issue, try the following steps:
  1. Reset the MAX Database in order to replace the database file with a default one. This can be helpful in cases of database corruption which might cause drivers to show up improperly in NI MAX
  2. If resetting the MAX database does not work, you can try reinstalling the driver
