Return
Import/Export wizards may fail to report errors
Under certain situations, Import/Export wizards may display only an error code, rather than a descriptive message. In other cases, these wizards could fail to report an error even if failure did occur.

Workaround: N/A

Reported Version: 4.5    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2009
91473

Return
MAX behaves incorrectly with a disconnect ENET device in the system
ENET Serial or GPIB devices added in MAX are treated as static resources. When the devices are off, MAX still attempts to connect to them. This can cause a timeout if you have a high port count.

Workaround: Delete the ENET devices from MAX.
