Issue Details

I have a PXIe-8880 controller and want to make use of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). How do I enable it and configure the encryption settings?


TPM can only be configured on a Windows Operating System. To do so, follow the steps below:
  1. Enable TPM in the BIOS.
    • Press the Delete Key to enter the BIOS upon machine boot.
    • Navigate to the "Advanced Setup" menu and select "TPM Configuration"
    • Change "TPM Enabled?" to "Enabled"
  2. Run the TPM Initialization Wizard
    • In your Start Menu, search for "tpminit.exe" and run it to start the configuration process
  3. Follow the instructions provided in the Microsoft link below.
    • TPM is a standard and not created by National Instruments, and so Microsoft has a tool built into Windows which allows you to set up the desired encryptions.
