Issue Details

When installing the National Instruments software that came with the physical media (i.e. USB drive), the installer hangs or errors show up.


Sometimes physical media can be corrupted or come corrupted.

One way to check this and solve the issue is to try and download the software in question from National Instruments' website.
  • If you are able to download and install the software successfully, the physical media could have been corrupted. If this is the case, inform our Support Team or your Account Manager (if you have one).
  • If you are still unable to┬áinstall the software successfully, Windows may be causing this issue. You could try doing a clean Windows install and then install your National Instruments software.
