I had recently a problem with Max : I got an error when viewing my NI hardware.
MAX was running very slowly ... like when its database is corrupted.
All board autotests were failed !
With the NI FRANCE support, we fixed the problem ! In fact one of the NI low level services was not running !
( NI device loader was not running )
We fixed the problem by changing the restart option of the windows service !
The problem was, that MAX wasn't working properly ... and was showing to me hardware errors !
But it fact there were no hardware problem, only a software issue !
It would be nice if MAX could check the working status of all its required components ( services ... ) !
A message at MAX startup saying "The NI device loader is not running !!! Max will not work properly" would have save us a lot of time !
I think that showing the problem at the launching of MAX is more user friendly that to let MAX hang and show a bad hardware configuration.
Thank you for your help.
