Unable to Install Individual Features in NI Installer

Updated Aug 21, 2018

Reported In


  • NI-DAQmx 9.7

Issue Details

I am not allowed to select the additional features when installing NI-DAQmx 9.7 It is showing a cross symbol beside each option. Normally I would be allowed to select the .NET Framework.


The symbol of the circle with the slash means that you do not have the required software present to install that feature. To install the .NET Framework feature, you have to ensure that the correct versions of the .NET Framework is installed and whether if its the Full version. This is important because the full .NET Framework libraries is needed to provide additional support for the NI drivers. 

Additional Information

You can check the version of the .NET Framework installed by checking your registry keys as described in the following article: How to: Determine which .NET Framework versions are installed
