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, but in order to work you would need to download and install the National Instrument's VISA library., also, PyVISA runs on Python 2.7 and 3.4+.
