Issue Details

I want to add a new simulated device in NI MAX, but when I right click the "Devices and Interfaces" section in NI MAX, nothing shows up.

Solution

Make sure you have the correct driver installed for the device you wish to simulate, e.g., if you want to simulate a NI DAQ device (USB-6008, PXIe 6345), make sure you have NI-DAQmx installed. To see which drivers you have installed, expand the "Software" section in NI MAX and look for the driver.

Additional Information
