  • Package Manager


  • NI-DAQmx

I looked for a DAQExpress download on the NI website and could not find one. Where can I download DAQExpress or a free trial/evaluation of DAQExpress?

You can access the DAQExpress software online only through the NI Package Manager (NIPM).

Additional Information

In order to install NIPM and DAQExpress, you can follow the steps below:

Warning: Installing NIPM replaces the NI Uninstaller. This means you can only uninstall NI software through NIPM. NIPM does not allow you to modify existing software installations, so that capability will be lost when you install it. 

  1. Download and install the most recent version of NI Package Manager from the NI website .
  2. Within NIPM, click the Application Software category on the left menu​. 
Note: Select the desired DAQExpress version using the latest NIPM 19.6.
  1. Click the green Install button.
  2. DAQExpress will begin installing.
  3. You will be asked to reboot your machine and upon restart, NI DAQExpress will appear under Start»All Programs.
Note: Please make sure you have already install the supported version of NI DAQmx driver before using DAQExpress, you can check the supported version of DAQExpress under Application Software Support at NI DAQmx readme page.
