Issue Details

I just upgraded versions of LabVIEW. In the upgraded version, I no longer see some of the palettes that were previously available in the Measurement I/O tab (i.e. NI DAQmx). How can I fix this?


There are two common causes of this issue after upgrading LabVIEW:
  • Incompatibility between LabVIEW, the Operating System (OS), and any drivers you wish to use
  • Failing to install or repair the drivers after the LabVIEW upgrade
For example, Upgrading or Downgrading LabVIEW with NI-DAQmx explains the proper steps to take when upgrading or downgrading LabVIEW and how to keep NI-DAQmx functioning. You can apply this same technique to other drivers.
