Issue Details

I use a driver from the Instrument Driver Network (IDNet) to communicate with a third party device. I would like to move from using a Windows OS to a Real-Time OS. Can I still use this driver?

Solution

Most plug and play drivers from IDNet are a package of VIs that rely on using the NI-VISA driver. As long as NI-VISA is correctly installed and pushed to the remote target with a Real-Time OS, you can use these drivers.
