DAQ assistant with AT-MIO-16E-2 board LabVIEW 7.1

Hi there,
I'm just trying to get started with some simple data acquisition, to learn the basics about it and hopefully be able to do more advanced stuff later.
I'm running LabVIEW 7.1 on Windows 2000, with an AT-MIO-16E-2 board connected to a NI TBX-68 which currently only has one thermocouple connected on channel 0. When I open MAX, I can see the board and if i press on test panels, i'm able to see the channel and it reacts if I touch the thermocouple. Therefore that seems to be all right.
But then if I try to put in the DAQ assistant into a VI and try to set up a task, it always says that 'no supported device could be found'. Does anybody around here know how to go about solving this problem?
Thanks a bunch,

Hi Fabian,

did you try to program this function by yourself with the DAQmx vi? Maybe this works.

Hi Mike,

thanks for your quick reply! I don't really know how to go about programming it in the DAQmx vi... can you give me some advice about how to do it?

Hi fabian,

here is a simple example. Maybe you can change it for your use.

Thanks Mike. Can you save files for older labview versions in labview 8? I'm running 7.1 so can't open it up. :S

mhh okay i think the problem is that my card is just not supported by the DAQ assistant. it's not listed as an DAXmx device in MAX, but as a 'traditional NI-DAQ Legacy Device', which is probably why the assistant didn't work with it. Seems like I'll have to do it the hard way...
