The legacy soft front panel for NI digital multimeters has been deprecated since NI-DMM 18.1 in favor of InstrumentStudio. InstrumentStudio is a 64-bit soft front panel application that unifies soft front panels for multiple NI instruments, including NI-DMM instruments, on 64-bit systems and is automatically installed when you install any of the applicable drivers on a 64-bit system. The legacy soft front panel was still included with NI-DMM for use on 32-bit systems, which do not support InstrumentStudio, or if you chose not to install InstrumentStudio. 

This guide contains the steps to download the legacy soft front panel If you need to use it with a version of NI-DMM that does not include it. 

Note: To run the legacy soft front panel, the LabVIEW Runtime engine (version 2018 or later) must be installed in your environment. 

Note: NI software released after May 1, 2021, no longer supports 32-bit operating systems. As a result, the legacy soft front panel for NI-DMM instruments has been removed from the NI-DMM installer starting with NI-DMM 21.3, and InstrumentStudio is now the only soft front panel application that is installed alongside the driver.
