The instrument drivers for the Astronics PXIe-1209, PXIe-2461 and PXIe-3352 are compatible with LabVIEW up to version 2017. This article provides the steps to install the instrument drivers for later versions. This is a workaround, the latest version of the driver is from 2017 and is not guaranteed to work with recent versions of LabVIEW.
