Issue Details

I am seeing the undefined module name of my SMU modules when I open NI MAX. It is written in form of "PCI\VEN_1093&DEVXXXX". This caused my Teststand to fail the steps involving this hardware.

 

Solution

  1. Reset NI MAX Database
  2. Reinstall the driver associated with the modules. In this case it will be NI-SMU.
