DSC MAX error while starting

Hi Guys,


I am recieving a strange MAX error (see attached file) when i launch MAX from my labview software. I am unable to create new database. The following is my configuration


I am using Labview 2011 on Windows Server 2008 (32-bit) with following add-ons

1) Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module

2) Real time Module


When i re-install the DSC module, it just shows installation successful but the same problem persists. Do i need to uninstall the whole Labview package and install again ?

Hi Turri,


The error dialog suggests checking out this document: Causes of an "Unexpected Error" from Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX), which then points to another document that is more specific to the error message you received NI Software Failure When PAE (Physical Address Extension) is Enabled on Windows Operating Systems. If you try disabling PAE, do you still receive the same error?
