Issue Details

I have installed the NI-ELVISmx 18.0 driver but when I try to start the NI ELVISmx Instrument Launcher nothing seems to happen.


The Soft Front Panels can be opened directly from the Windows Start menu in the National Instruments folder click Start>>All Programs>>National Instruments>>NI ELVISmx for NI ELVIS & NI myDAQ>> NI ELVISmx Instruments.

Additional Information

The NI ELVISmx Instrument Launcher crash on startup has been observed in the NI ELVISmx 18.0 driver, but not in previous versions.
