Issue Details

I have the following hardware configuration: Basler sprint line scan camera with PCIe-1430 frame grabber. According to compatibility specification available here, this camera is supported by the selected grabber. 

Frame grabber and camera are correctly recognized in MAX. However when I want to validate my setup by clicking Snap the following error message pop-ups after a while.

It is true that this specific line camera is compatible with PCIe-1430, but configuration file may not include settings for this hardware. In order to create a new configuration file, first, check what modes are supported in the designated camera. You will find compatibility camera report in:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\NI-IMAQdx\Data

According to the supported modes you can create new camera configuration file with NI Camera File Generator dedicated for the chosen frame grabber.
