NI VISA Shared Components 64-bit version 15.5 fails when trying to install on Windows 11 ARM

Hello all,

 

I am trying to re-install a software which I use for my Taekwondo school called Truescore 2017.  It is an electronic system where it reads the sensors from contact of a foot protector and contact to a chest protector.  This software has worked in the past when I was running it on my MacBook Pro Intel processor running Windows 11 on a Parallels virtualization.  I have recently purchased a new MacBook Pro which uses an ARM processor and had to re-install the Parallels virtualization software and run Windows 11 ARM64.  Now whenever I try to run the Truescore 2017 software, it will process but will fail when it comes to the installation of NI VISA 15.5 Runtime Support.  I will receive the following error message:

 

VISA Shared Components 64-Bit:

 

Error 1304.  Error writing to file: Ivi.Visa.Interop.dll.  Verify that you have access to that directory.

 

I have tried installing both with my account and also running as Administrator with no success.

 

I have even checked the permissions and they are correct.

 

Would anyone know what would be causing the failure of the installation of the VISA Shared Components 64-bit?

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Best Regards,

 

Sam

From what I have heard, NI Hardware drivers are not compatible with ARM architecture. Only Intel or AMD is supported.

Thank you for the response Santhosh.

 

Is NI working on or planning in the future support of software and hardware drivers for the ARM architecture?

I am not aware of any such public announcements by NI, let us see if other forum members have any lead.

Thank you Santhosh for your assistance.  It is greatly appreciated.

 

I am sure eventually there will be development for ARM based processors as this is fairly new from Apple.

I was wondering if I can get an update on compatibility with Windows 11 ARM.

Unfortunately, NI employees on the forum may not share any non-public information and the regular forum users don't have access to such information unless it was a public release.

 

If you need an official update, you need to raise a support ticket to get an answer (not guaranteed).

 

Edit: In general, any new feature/support for any product requires sufficient market demand and revenue from that demand to drive the efforts.
