Issue Details

The chassis is recognized in NI MAX, however, I can't select it as an option in DAQExpress. The modules in my chassis are supported in the DAQExpress readme. Why can't I use it?


DAQExpress currently only supports USB C series chassis:
  • cDAQ-9171
  • cDAQ-9174
  • cDAQ-9178

Additional Information

Additionally, switches, NI ELVIS II, SensorDAQ, PXI DAQ, SCXI chassis and modules, and Legacy USB cDAQ are not supported by DAQExpress.
