Issue Details

I want to know the compatibility of PyVISA and nidaqmx for Windows and Python.

Solution

The nidaqmx package contains the Application Programming Interface (API) for interacting with the NI-DAQmx driver and it is only supported  on Windows  using  CPython 2.7, 3.4+, PyPy2, and PyPy3.

PyVISA is a Python package that enables you to control all kinds of measurement devices independently of the interface. PyVISA runs on Python 2.7 and 3.4+.
