Version Inconsistency Between NI MAX About and NI MAX System Information

Updated Jul 19, 2018

Reported In

Software

  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

I recently upgraded my version of NI-DAQmx. In NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (NI MAX), I see the version number in Help >> About does not match my NI-DAQmx version number in Help >> System Information. Why is this?

Solution

The version referenced in Help >> About is for NI MAX. NI MAX does not necessarily have the same version number as NI-DAQmx. 

Additional Information

NI MAX is used for the configuration of NI hardware and software. NI-DAQmx is the driver responsible for interacting with NI DAQ hardware.
