Issue Details

I have a DAQPad that works on Windows XP, but when I plug it into a Windows 7 system my PC does not detect it. Does Windows 7 support the DAQPad?


The following devices are currently not supported in NI-DAQmx on Windows 7 (32 bit and 64-bit versions):
  • DAQPad-6015 for USB
  • DAQPad-6015 for USB (BNC)
  • DAQPad-6015 for USB (Mass Termination) 
  • DAQPad-6016 for USB

Refer to the Readme for your DAQmx driver for more information. Note that NI-DAQmx does still support these devices on Windows XP 32 bit.
