Issue Details

When I open the NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX), the IVI Drivers tab under My System tab is missing. What should I do to resolve this issue?


The IVI Drivers category provides access to all of your IVI logical names. Logical names allow you to define and name multiple driver sessions and switch between them by referencing the logical name in an application program.

When this tab is missing, it meas you haven't installed the IVI Compliance Package. Download the package from our web page here. You can take a look at the Readme file to check if the version you are going to download is compatible with your OS and LabVIEW version.

Once installed, reboot your PC, open NI MAX, and the tab should be there.
