usb ni-6008 with LabWindows/CVI version 5.0



I would like to use USB NI-6008 with LabWindows CVI version 5.0. The hardware comes with DAQmx version 9.3.5, which does not support CVI v.5.0.

Any ideas how to use this CVI version with USB NI-6008?


Many thanks..

Hi there,


Like you said, DAQmx is only officially compatible with LabWindows/CVI 7.0 or later. This link has more information on this compatibility:

In addition, USB-6008 is only officially compatible with DAQmx (previously, the plaform was Traditional DAQ). You would need Traditional DAQ to work with CVI 5.0, but the USB-6008 doesn't officially work with that.


Someone here might have an alternative solution, but though it seems you need to use CVI 5.0, is it possible to upgrade this?
