Plus Sign Shown At Software List of CompactRIO in NI-MAX

Updated Jul 28, 2020

Issue Details

I notice that there is a plus sign at my software list of CRIO in NI MAX. Does it indicate anything? Will it affect my cRIO performance?
 

Solution

The plus sign indicates that the software is an optional add-ons that is being installed together with the recommended software needed to run the cRIO. You can specify which optional software that you want to install by ticking it during the add/remove software session for cRIO. Note that everytime you add or remove software, the cRIO will be formatted.
