Issue Details

I have a third-party instrument driver written in LabVIEW, can I use this driver in LabVIEW NXG?

Solution

Instrument drivers must be written specifically for LabVIEW NXG to be compatible with LabVIEW NXG. Many third-party drivers have been migrated into NXG and can be found by searching in NI Package Manager. 

If a driver has not been written for NXG, you can request from the third-party itself that they release an NXG driver or migrate the driver into NXG using the NXG Code Conversion Utility.

 

Additional Information

LabVIEW drivers are basically LabVIEW VIs that are built using lower level calls such as VISA or NI-Serial. Version compatibility of LabVIEW drivers can be treated very similarly to compatibility of any VI.
