How come the “start” button in my software is grayed out and unusable?

Since version 4.1 of AcqKnowledge, there has been a preference setting that allows the software to “Always work with no hardware connected”. If the Start button is disabled when you launch the software and no error message is displayed at startup, then most probably the ‘no hardware’ preference has been enabled. Choose “Preferences…” from the “Display” menu of any AcqKnowledge graph window, click “Hardware” in the list at the left. Then look for a check box with text such as “Always work with no data acquisition hardware connected”. If this box has a check mark in it, click to uncheck it, and re-start AcqKnowledge.
