Issue Details

I am using a DMM PXIe-4081 or PXIe-4082 and I need to export the NI-MAX configuration from my development machine and import it in multiple floor machines. When I try to export the configuration, the PXIe-408X device is not listed in the list of hardware to be added to the export file.
