Issue Details

I would like to download and install the current version of National Instruments DataSocket and/or DataSocket Server on my computer. Where can I find the latest version of this to download it from National Instruments' website?


The latest release of the DataSocket libraries and the DataSocket Server is installed with the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine. Go to the NI Downloads web page at and search for "LabVIEW Run-Time Engine" and select the correct download for your OS.

Note: You can have multiple versions of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine installed if you need to also have multiple versions of DataSocket.
