Where do I download the Traditional NI-DAQ drivers? 


Traditional NI-DAQ (tDAQ) is a legacy driver that has been superseded by DAQmx. In the event that the tDAQ driver is needed, it can be downloaded straight from the National Instruments download page

Search for the tDAQ driver that you need (look at the 'Supported Hardware' section of the page to see if that particular driver will work for your device, as well as the compatible Windows versions in the title). The download link should be near the top of the page, as shown:

Additional Information

In the event that the download link is not on the top of the tDAQ page, you can find it under the 'Description' tab:
