Issue Details

When I try to install software on a myRIO-1900 or myRIO-1950 using Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) I receive the following error:

Also, when I try to do install software using the Getting Started with myRIO software, I receive the error below:



1. It has been noticed that these errors usually appear if you try to install software on your NI myRIO using Windows 8.1 with a third party firewall. Since myRIO is using Ethernet over USB to communicate with your PC, you still need to pay attention to your network settings.

To avoid those problems, make sure that the firewall is disabled or proper exceptions are configured. In some cases it might be necessary to uninstall the firewall.

2. If it does not solve the problem connect your myRIO via wifi as shown in Creating Wireless Networks Using NI myRIO and install the software from MAX (Installing Software on NI myRIO).
