Issue Details

While installing the DAQmx Driver CD,  I get internal errors during installation of NI-DAQmx Expert Framework and NI-DAQmx, and I also get error 2329 during installation of NI-VISA and NI-RPC. What could be causing this?

While installing NI Software, like TestStand, I receive error 1722. What could be causing this?


An active virus scanning utility can cause either of these errors to occur during installation of the DAQmx Driver CD or other NI software. To prevent this from happening, you should disable the active virus scanning utility during the installation of the drivers.  Once your drivers or software are installed, you should be able to enable your virus scanning utilities again.

Additional Information

If you are still experiencing this error after disabling your virus scanning utilities in WIndows XP, please see Why Do I Get Error 1722 When Installing the Driver CD with Windows XP? 

Similarly, if this error occurs while you are uninstalling LabVIEW 7.1, even after trying the above steps, please see KnowledgeBase 38MG1QEW: Error 1722 When Uninstalling LabVIEW 7.1
