Issue Details

I am unable to find Microsoft Word and Excel on my Windows PXI/PXIe Controller after upgrading to Windows 10. Where can I find the same?


National Instruments does not ship PXI/PXIe controllers with Microsoft Office installed on them. Hence, it is an expected behavior for the Controllers to not have Microsoft Office installed by default.

You may contact IT team of your respective organisation to help you with the installation of Microsoft Office using the license purchased by your organisation.
