Updated May 5, 2022



  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

How do I save the list of information shown under My System » Software in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to a text file?

The MAX System Information window will list all of the OS specifications as well as the National Instruments software installed on the system in a text format.

1. Open the System Information window by selecting Help » System Information.

2. In this window click Copy All to store the entire text on the clipboard.

3. Paste <Ctrl-V> the text into a Word Processor such as Notepad or Microsoft Word.

4. Once in a text editor you can trim down the list to only the relevant information and then save or print the document.
