Issue Details

I have Data acquisition Hardware from NI which is quite old. I have a new machine with Windows 10. Is the device compatible?


It depends on the driver the device is working with. The driver needs to support both the device and the operating system. New DAQ devices work with the NI DAQmx Driver which is compatible to Windows 10 since version 15.0. Old DAQ devices work with the traditional NI-DAQ Driver which cannot be installed on Windows 10.
You can find the information which driver your device is working with in the user manual of the device. Also, for each driver the supported devices are listed in the readme.
