How to Programmatically Launch MAX Test Panels From LabVIEW for a Local Device

Sometimes a user simply wants to see the output of a DAQ devices and is uninterested in logging that data or getting specific values. In this case it's appropriate to simply launch a MAX test panel to quickly look at what a DAQ card can do.

This VI will allow a user to launch a MAX test panel from the command line. This example is inspired from this Knowledge Base Article: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/9B628A8B1B13136F86256DDB0004DE4D

Steps to implement or execute code
To implement this example:

  1. Set the path to nidmfpan.exe
  2. Select the DAQ device you'd like to use
  3. Press run
  4. When complete, close the window and the VI will automatically stop

To execute this example:

  1. Install the required software.
  2. Connect the DAQ hardware
  3. Open the VI and refer the Implement Steps
