Does my Computer Support NI-DAQmx?

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

I have a computer with a specific brand or model, and I would like to know if NI-DAQmx will run properly on it.


Basically, to determine if your computer can run NI-DAQmx it will be only required to check the following two aspects:
  • The Operating System running on your computer. Refer to the following article: What Operating Systems Support my DAQ Device?
  • The system requirements that the particular NI-DAQmx will need. To understand this better here I use this example:                                                                                                                                                         
For the NI-DAQmx 17.6.0, we can check the system requirements using its readme file NI-DAQmx 17.6 Readme.
There we can find the following chart which shows the minimum system requirements for this software:

In this way we have to make sure that our computer meets these requirements.
