Improve hardware configuration in installation

Problem:

As much bug as suggestion, but since it's been this way for a bunch of years i assume it's a "feature"

 

I just had a project in which i defined some DAQmx tasks in the project, but in order to get them installed on the target i need to:

1. Export the tasks from the project

2. Select import MAX tasks in the installer which starts and forces me to run a new export.

3. Re-export the tasks from the project to overwrite the max export ...

(yes i could have skipped step 1 had i known the cumbersome mess)

 

Why cant i simply select a configuration file to include in the installer?

Why cant i select/choose tasks defined in the project?

 

If i want to avoid the exporter i need to edit the project xml, that's not acceptable.

 

Solution:

Allow to simply select a configuration file to include in the installer

Allow select/choose tasks defined in the project
