What software did your hardware come with?  I've never used that hardware but I see someone selling drivers here:

It does seem odd to me that you have to pay for your hardware drivers so I'd contact the manufacturer to see if they have anything.

The basic API is free. A third party (not Peak or NI) has created a LabVIEW API for sale, there's a link on the Peak site

Hi, I am using VN1600 and VN1630A, I also have a peak can dongle, from your blog I could not download the vector CAN driver, I am using labview2018 64bits computer, it says wrong version and grey-out, I would appreciate if you would help me for my project, I want to get my data out of my device(voltage/current/temperature with time) using CAN to dbc file through labview. I am a newbie to this

Forums work best when you have one topic or question per post.  You have changed topics to Vector hardware and in the future it would probably be best if you made a new thread asking about this.  

 

That being said the reason you can't install the drivers is because Vector provides a Windows x86 built DLL to control their hardware and that means only LabVIEW 32-bit applications can use the drivers.

Also after a little more searching I found some code posted over on LAVA that is a PCAN driver for LabVIEW which just wraps the functionality of the PCAN_USB.dll.
