NI Device Drivers 2016.08

NI Device Drivers 2016.08

I downloaded these yesterday (using the download manager), but when I try to unzip them, I get an error. Assuming a download problen, I retried the download with the same result. Has anyone else had this?

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Re: NI Device Drivers 2016.08

Can you specify what error you got?
-What is your PC OS version?
-Is this the first time you are installing or you had installed in this machine earlier?
-You can Verify Validity of My Downloaded Installation Files if the download is corrupt :http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/48ADD3EC8940ACE886257D7B0061F542
Thanks

Re: NI Device Drivers 2016.08

I'm pretty sure I did exactly this a month ago, with no problems.  Just as a test, I'm currently repeating it.  I just successfully downloaded the "Downloader", an Executable that downloads "NI Device Drivers August 2016" as a .zip file.  It has 52 minutes to go, so I'll have breakfast and come back and tell you if I was able to open the Zip file (I expect that the answer will be "Yes" -- I was clearly able to do this a month ago, so expect this time will work the same way).

OK, I now have a file called DCD-Aug16.zip on my Desktop.  If I right-click it and say "Open with WinZip", it shows me two folders, DCD-Aug16-1 and DCD-Aug16-2, which mimics the two-DVD set that came with LabVIEW 2014.  Since WinZip is set as the program to open .Zip files, double-clicking the file produces the same result.  I'll note that when I did my download a month ago, the files that I unpacked resulted in a folder called DriverDVD, with two sub-folders called Vol1 and Vol2.

 

Just to be certain, I did a comparison of the two downloads.  They are substantially identical (the Creation Time for some of the folders differ by a few seconds), the .XML file that I think describes the Distribution differs slightly, and the files I just downloaded have a pair of AutoRun files added (I think my August download was intended to be a "single volume Install" -- the single Setup.exe includes not only LabVIEW and Toolkits, but also Drivers, all without "changing disks").

Re: NI Device Drivers 2016.08

Thanks for taking the trouble. I did this yesterday on a PC running Win7x64. Just now I downloaded again to a PC running Win 8.1x64. This time I had no issues extracting to the same USB stick. It seems that further investigation is nesessary regarding the original PC, but for now my problem is solved somehow.

 

If I ever find out what the original problem was, I'll report back here. It does seem PC/OS related on the face of it.

 

Thanks again,

 

Joe

Windows file explorer "peeks" into .zip files. It will even allow you to open files from inside a .zip. But, to run the device driver installer you have to extract the files first.

Yes, I was extracting them to my USB stick.
