How to Generate a Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) System Information Report

Primary Software: Utility Software>>Measurement & Automation Explorer
Primary Software Version: 5.0
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: Utility Software>>Measurement & Automation Explorer

How do I save the list of information shown under My System » Software in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to a text file?

The MAX System Information window will list all of the OS specifications as well as the National Instruments software installed on the system in a text format.

1. Open the System Information window by selecting Help » System Information.

2. In this window click Copy All to store the entire text on the clipboard.

3. Paste (ctrl+V) the text into a Word Processor such as Notepad or Microsoft Word.

4. Once in a text editor you can trim down the list to only the relevant information and then save or print the document.

Note: For steps to generate a full configuration report for MAX that will include this same information and much more in an HTML format, refer to this article:
