Measurement & Automation Explorer behaviour

Hello NI guys,

 

I want to know when NI will develop a better software than MAX, each new release is more unstable than the previous one.

With the release 5.1.0f0, each MAX execution starts or stops by a crash. It's totaly unusable.

I want to change the name, it hangs !

I want to see the boards on the target, it hangs !

......

 

I don't know why it hangs, I can use a computer with only NI Products and nothing else, it will hang on each time.

I'M NOT ALONE IN THIS CASE !

 

Please hurry up and develop a new software to setup the target !!!!

 

Best Regards

MAX 5.1 is from a few releases back.  

 

I would suggest upgrading to MAX 5.5 (NI System Configuration 5.5).  In addition to being a lot more stable it has built in support for sending crash dumps back to NI.  So if you continue to see problems with 5.5 please click the send button when it crashes, so we can get to the root of the problem and create a fix.

 

Thanks,

Hello JoshuaP,

 

I just upgraded to MAX 5.5, I've got the same but of course now MAX display a window to send the error.

Now, the next problem is go beyond the proxy with MAX.

It should be interesting to do it like the NI Update service and take automatically the current settings to get connected to the proxy.

 

Thanks

What were you doing when it crashed? In addition would you mind attaching the technical support report from MAX.
