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

First, make sure you have the correct driver installed for the device you wish to simulate. To see which drivers you have installed, expand the Software section in the leftmost pane in NI MAX and look for the driver.

If the correct driver version is installed and you are still unable to simulate a device, force reinstall the driver.
