The minimum required driver version for Hardware Configuration Utility is NI-DAQmx 21.3.0. For older versions of this driver you can use the NI-DAQmx Configuration Utility (nidaqmxconfig) which gets automatically installed with NI-DAQmx (also with the newer versions). This tool allows you to import and export your hardware configuration as text files which are easily modified and read manually using text editors and spreadsheet applications. These files are in an INI-style format and describe the hardware configuration including plug-in devices, SCXI, SCC, and TEDS.
You can refer the section NI MAX Feature Replacements in the document Windows vs Desktop Linux DAQmx Experience Differences to get an understanding of which features are either: Not Accessible, Programmatically Accessible, or accessible through the provided tool.
