Issue Details

I am trying to download the NI-IMAQ and/or the NI-IMAQdx driver but can't find these drivers on NI's download page. How can I download these drivers?


To download these drivers, download the Vision Acquisition Software (VAS) package. VAS includes NI-IMAQ, NI-IMAQdx, and NI-IMAQ I/O driver sets that serve different vision application purposes. After running the VAS installer, you will be given the option to choose which of the drivers you want to install.

Additional Information

In older versions of NI Package Manager, the NI-IMAQdx driver was available as a separate installer in the Browse Products tab, as shown below. However, in version 20.6 and later of NI Package Manager, the Browse Products tab was removed and you must download the online installer from NI's download page
