Issue Details

I am going to purchase and install NI OPC Servers.
In order to install and use it, do I need to purchase and install any additional NI software (such as LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module, also known as LabVIEW DSC Module)?



In order to connect to and communicate with NI OPC Servers, you will need a client.
NI OPC Servers only supports National Instruments clients and must be used in one of the following supported development environments:
You must also have the device driver for the client you are connecting to and that will be installed to the computer the development environment and OPC Server is installed on.
