SCXI Chassis Is No Longer Configurable in NI MAX

Issue Details

After updating to DAQmx 19.1, I can no longer configure a SCXI chassis in NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (NI MAX) or Calibration Executive. How do I fix this?


This is expected behavior. The NI-DAQmx driver drops support for our legacy SCXI hardware in all versions at and after NI-DAQmx 19.1 .

Therefore, to enable SCXI configuration within NI MAX or Calibration Executive, uninstall NI-DAQmx within NI Package Manager (NIPM) and reinstall NI-DAQmx 19.0.
  • Ensure the dependency NI-DAQmx Runtime with Configuration Support is properly uninstalled and reinstalled with a compatible version at or before 19.0. This is the component that enables the SCXI configuration.
