-For ACE version 1.13 and earlier, there is a known driver conflict issue between the NI VISA driver and Keysight'​s VISA driver (used for automation of equipment). To work around this, try setting the Keysight VISA driver as the secondary VISA driver. This can be done with the Keysight installer. If this doesn'​t work, you may need to uninstall the Keysight Driver.\\+If the HSDAC components are not installed, there is a known driver conflict issue between the NI VISA driver and Keysight'​s VISA driver (used for automation of equipment).

 +===== ACE Version Updater not working =====
 +<WRAP center round info 60%>
 +This issue only affects ACE Version 1.13
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +Some of the earlier versions of ACE Release 1.13 had an issue where the ACE updater was not detecting and downloading the latest version of ACE. If this happens, simply download the latest version of ACE from the [[adi>​en/​design-center/​evaluation-hardware-and-software/​ace-software.html|Analog Website]] and install manually. ​
 +
 +This was resolved in ACE version 1.14.2763.1212.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== ACE Crashes on Startup after Update =====
 +<note tip>
 +This issues has been fixed with the latest release of ACE, v1.15.2818.1254
 +</​note>​
 +
 +When updating from an older version of ACE there is an issue that can cause ACE to crash on startup. ACE can crash with one of the two following errors present in the exception.txt or AppTrace.log application log files:
 +
 +<note important>​
 +   ​System.NullReferenceException: ​
 +   ​Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
 +   at AnalogDevices.Csa.UI.Themes.ThemeSelector.ApplyPreferredTheme()
 +   at AnalogDevices.Csa.App.Wpf.CsaApplication..ctor()
 +   at AnalogDevices.Csa.App.Wpf.Program.Main()
 +</​note>​
 +
 +<note important>​
 +   ​System.Exception:​ Cannot find resource named '​WindowBackgroundBrush'​. Resource names are case sensitive.
 +</​note>​
 +
 +This occurs because of a missing user setting when moving from older versions of ACE. This should not occur if you perform a scrub uninstall prior to updating the software, if you are updating from a version of ACE higher than v1.12 or if you are installing ACE for the first time.
 +
 +The issue will not occur with the latest update of ACE, however if you are already experiencing this and need to resolve it in order for ACE to start, follow the steps below:
 +  - Ensure ACE is not running
 +  - Open the AnalogDevices folder in LocalAppData (C:​\Users\username\AppData\Local\Analog Devices)
 +  - Open the ACE folder ​
 +  - Open the UserSettings folder
 +  - Delete the Configuration.Settings.xml file
 +  - Restart ACE
 +
 +This will fix the startup issue and allow ACE to generate a new complete user settings file.
 +
 +<note tip>
 +This issues has been fixed with the latest release of ACE, v1.15.2818.1254
 +</​note>​
 +
 +
 +===== ACEZIP file crashing when launched =====
 +
 +In some cases when you try to open an ACEZIP file it may result in the ACE application crashing. ​
 +
 +If this happens, follow these steps to add the plug-in within the ACE application.
 +  - Open ACE 
 +  - Click on Plug-In MarketPlace (Plug-in manager)
 +  - Click on Installed Packages ​
 +  - Enter the name of the plug-in to the search box eg. AD1234
 +  - If the plug-in is found then Select it and click "​Uninstall Selected"​
 +  - Click on Settings ​
 +  - Click on Plug-ins ​
 +  - Click on the + sign to the right of the "​Zipped Plug-in Sources" ​
 +  - Under name , enter a new value eg "​NewSource"​
 +  - In the Source Column click on the box with three dots  "​..."​.
 +  - When the pop-up opens find and select the ACEZIP file  ​
 +  - Click open (This will now have created a new Zipped Plug-in source )
 +  - Click Ok to return to the "​Plug-in Manager" ​
 +  - Click on "​Available Packages "
 +  - Click on the name you used in step 9 "​NewSource"​
 +  - Click on available plug-in eg. Board.AD1234
 +  - Click "​Install Selected" ​
 +  - Click Close (The plug-in should now be available for use)
 +
 +===== Contact ACE Support =====
 +<note important>​
 +
 +If the above solutions do not resolve your issue, then please use the "​Report Issue" function from the ACE menu.
 +This will generate an email to the ACE support team (and attach any relevant diagnostic files)
