The initial problem (NI Vision did not initialize properly) has been fixed, my issues (also mentioned in an earlier post) still remain. Listed below for convenience...
Sorry for the inconvenience regarding the MAX experience changes for Camera Link.The MAX experience is different in the newer VAS because now that IMAQdx added support for Camera Link, MAX is using that driver instead of IMAQ. Because typical IMAQdx users don't need to explicitly deal with .icd files (because most IMAQdx cameras support GenICam which requires much less manual intervention), it can be much more cumbersome for the Camera Link use-case if you need to interact with custom .icd files. If you prefer the old MAX experience, there is a registry key you can use to enable the IMAQ experience just as it was before.
Hope this helps,
