The size of the NI-488.2 driver files is quite large. I have an inquiry from a customer about the possibility of having a driver that just contains the driver to be recognised by the computer, without all the compatibility files for programs such as C++, Visual Basic etc.
For certain customers, there is alot of overhead associated with downloading a file the size of the current NI-488.2 driver, when the compatibility for different environments is not always necessary.
