Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-60S6C is invisible for NI-MAQdx. But is visible for FlyCap2.

I have a GS3-U3 camera that can be seen by the manufacturer's software (using their USB3 driver), but when you click the "FLIR USB3 Vision Camera" entry in Devices and Interfaces in MAX, I get an error saying I had the wrong driver.  Right-clicking the Camera in MAX and choosing "Driver" (LabVIEW 2019 Drivers) provides a choice of two:  the manufacturer's "FLIR USB3 Vision Camera" and "NI-IMAQdx USB3 Vision Device".  Selecting the latter (which requires Admin rights) switches the Driver and changes the name of the Camera in MAX.


At this point, you can open the Camera in MAX and do a Snap or Grab.  If you want to go back to the Manufacturer's software, it will show up as an "Unknown U3V Device" and will show a "3rd party driver installed" and give you an option to switch the driver back.  A bit of a pain ...
