Issue Details

Why can't I launch NI Update Service on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003 any more?

Solution

National Instruments web services dropped support for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003 by end of 2016. National Instruments web services affected include NI Update Service, Instrument Driver Finder, and some web-based installers.

As a result, these NI services will no longer work on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003 operating systems. If you want to continue to use these internet-based NI services, upgrade your operating system to Windows 7 or newer.
