Can't find PXIe 8135 as a option in MAX



I am trying to setup a project with the PXIe 8135 controller and the PXIe 1085 chassis but can't find it in MAX. I am currently downloading the latest DAQmx drivers 9.6.1, so hopefully that helps. I am trying to run the setup the project with simulated hardware until we get the PXI that's on order.

Hi PXi8135


You should find the controller under the chassis expanded under 'Devices and Interfaces' on 'My System'


Let me know how you get on.


Kind regards

Hi Again


I checked the manual here, on page 6 you can see that PXI Platform Services must be installed for the controller to show up properly in MAX.

Do you have a PXI Platform Services CD or a National Instruments Driver DVD?

Alternatively you can download it here


Kind Regards

This looks like it could be the answer that I was looking for, will update you if it works.

I was just told by NI support atht he PXIe-8135 only supports LabVIEW 2012 if you're using it for Real-Time. I noticed also in a host computer that doesn't have 2012 that it's unable to display the controller at all in MAX either.

Hi H-Yong,

It is seems that I am facing the same problem with you, I am using Laptop to connect to PXIe-8135, which is embedded in NI PXIe-1082. But in "my system", PXIe-8135 does not appear. Please find the attached picture.

I dont know why, I am using Labview 2013.


Please guide me if you have already solved your problem 5 years ago.
