Issue Details

I just installed Measurement Studio on my computer, and I can't find any of the Measurement Studio components in my toolbox.


If you want to automatically have the Measurement Studio controls added to the Visual Studio Toolbox, you should create your project as a Measurement Studio project, as shown below. 

Additional Information

To add Measurement Studio controls to the Visual Studio Toolbox, right-click the Toolbox, select Choose Items, and select the National Instruments components you want to add. If National Instruments components are not listed, click Browse, browse to the <Measurement Studio Assemblies>\Current folder, and select the National Instruments assembly that includes the UI controls you want to add.
