Issue Details

I need to use a PCI DAQ device with an operating system not supported by NI-DAQmx. How can I use my acquisition card and where can I find documentation about it ?


There are two main options to use DAQ devices with non-supported operating systems. The recommended one is to use NI-DAQmx Base, which offers easy access to DAQmx features on other operating systems. The other method is to use the NI Measurement Hardware Driver Development Kit. This development kit gives access to register-level programming and includes hardware specific documentation.

Additional Information

Although the NI Measurement Hardware Driver Development Kit is not supported by Applications Engineering, you can get support through other channels. More information on support channels can be found here.
