Can't Import .nce File in NI MAX

Issue Details

I can't install my .nce file I created on another computer into NI MAX. It doesn't throw an error, it just doesn't import properly.

I also can't import any file types other than .nce's. I remember being able to install .ini and .txt files in NI MAX before, but I can't select that file type on this computer. What can I do to fix this?


NI MAX is probably corrupted on your computer. You should try performing a force reinstall of NI MAX to see if this resolves your behavior.

Additional Information

If NI MAX does not allow you to import other file types than .nce files, this indicates that NI MAX is not working properly on your computer.
