Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

The File program size is too big and wont upload.

 

Is there any chance I could talk with someone on the phone. This NI card is brand new

Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

Was able to update the DAQmx on my windows 7 side however the XP side woudl not update. So I am unintalling it and going to reinstall the same daqmx I installed earlier this morning on my Window 7.

 

If there any way I could match the version of daqmx from my XP side? When that software located?

Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

It looks like you have DAQmx 9.5 on your XP VM. You can get that from here. If you want to put that version, you will need to uninstall DAQmx 9.5.1 on your Windows 7 machine. What error were you getting when you tried to repair your DAQmx driver on your XP VM?

Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

OK I have installed my program on 4 different XP SP3 machines, and they all work correctly. I have attached a screen shot of the installed .dll files from National Instruments after I install my program in my program directory. I notied the the DAQmx.dll is a older driver (10/10/2005) could this be the issue???

Earlier you said that if you change your target CPU to x86, you program would hang. Did you try creating a debuggable executable and seeing where it is getting stuck?

Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

They way you import it in your sample code is correct. Have you tried running the text based examples that come with DAQmx on your Windows 7 machine? You can find the the path to the examples here.

Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

I have confirmed all my code works fine on any XP sP3 machine with the installation of the DVD software 9.3.5. After I installed the DVD software 9.3.5 I get a folder under the assemblies folder of 9.1.20.159.

 

My software runs correctly and can see the card and can make all calls to the NI 6525 USB card without any errors.

 

However I am still having issues with Windows 7 64 bit.

Re: VB and NI-DAQ Card

Can this NI card card be run under a 64 bit environment?
