Where is the MAX configuration stored?

We had a PC die with a pretty convoluted set of MAX Tasks set up, but not exported.

Is it possible to retrieve the MAX configuration file off the HDD and load it into another machine running MAX?

Where is this file located?

Hi Jed,


The steps in this article for removing MAX Database corruption will show you where to locate the MAX Data folder (step 5 of "For earlier versions of MAX").  If you're on Windows Vista or Windows 7, this would be under: C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\MAX\Data.


You can copy the whole folder, but the main file of interest is config3.mxs, so you can try copying just that if all else fails.


Hope this helps!

I will try that out right away.  Thank you!
