Issue Details

  • I have already installed LabVIEW, and the DAQ Assistant Express VI is missing or not showing up in my Measurement I/O functions palette, or when I use search.
  • I just installed NI-DAQmx and LabVIEW, but DAQ functions, like DAQ Assistant, are not available in LabVIEW. However I can create a task in NI MAX. What's wrong with LabVIEW?

Solution

The DAQ Assistant is part of the NI-DAQmx DAQ hardware driver  and is not included with the LabVIEW download.
