Issue Details

I am getting driver errors when viewing my SCXI-1600 in either an SCXI-1000 or SCXI-1001 chassis in NI MAX. Is the SCXI-1600 compatible with Windows 7/10 64-bits?


The SCXI-1600 drivers are not compatible with the Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bits, as outlined in the NI-DAQmx readme. As a workaround: Note: The latest version of NI-DAQmx that supports SCXI hardware is 19.0.  

Note: Due to the use of virtual machines in this solution, NI does not guarantee its functionality. 

Additional Information

You still can use other SCXI modules and chassis, such as SCXI-1000 and SCXI-1001, with Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10.
