Issue Details

I have old DAQ hardware or hardware that uses DAQmx that I am not sure is supported in my version of LabVIEW.  How do I determine if my version of LabVIEW or DAQmx is compatible with my hardware and operating system?


In order to communicate with NI Data Acquisition devices you need to have installed the compatible hardware driver (NI-DAQmx or Traditional NI-DAQ(Legacy)) and LabVIEW.

Note: Traditional NI-DAQ is a Legacy product and is no longer availble for download. Please refer to Transition from Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) to NI-DAQmx in LabVIEW
  • If you already have software installed on your development system, Determine the Version of the NI Software Installed on Your Computer. Find the versions for the hardware driver (Ni-DAQmx or Tradition NI-DAQ) and LabVIEW. Check for Compatibility in the section below
  • If you do not have software installed on your development system, check for compatibility in the section below and install the appropriate software.
