Where does max 2.2 store its (Traditional) DAQ tasks


Recommended Posts

I had to go to a customer for a very old project of theirs.


They still use LV6.1 , tradiotional DAQ , ...


After reboot of the PC and login by another user all configured DAQ tasks were gone.


There is no documentation on the setup so recreating is not an option.


They have an old image of the PC so .... where does MAX (version 2.2) store it's DAQ tasks, scales etc ?

On modern Windows the folder is something like C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\MAX\Data  Not sure where ProgramData maps in XP I think it was something like C:\Documents and Settings\User\AppData\Roaming\National Instruments\MAX\Data but you'll have to look around to see.


I think DAQmx settings are saved in config3.mxd, I don't remember what file the traditional DAQ is saved in but I'd bet it is in that same directory.


If this doesn't work is it possible to deploy that image to a temporary PC or a virtual PC, then do a MAX export, and then import it back on the new PC?


EDIT:  Oh here is some more information. http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/DAD981AFEF149B458625778100775987
