Issue Details

What software do I need to have installed on my computer to be able to change the programming mode of modules in my cRIO-904x chassis between Real-Time (NI-DAQmx), Real-Time Scan (IO Variables), and LabVIEW FPGA?


In order to change the programming mode of the modules in your CompactRIO with NI-DAQmx (cRIO-904x or cRIO-905x series), refer to the getting started guide for your specific controller on what software you will need. Once you have the proper software installed for your application, you can follow the steps further down in your cRIO controller Getting Started Guide to change the programming mode.
