Hi,

 

It seems as if you have the driver.  The driver that is compatible with your system is DAQmx.  The DAQmx 8.8 readme states that this driver is compatible with the USB-6251.  Are you unable to use the DAQmx API in your application development environment?  Are you experiencing a particular issue?

Hi,  thanks for the reply

 

You ask:


  Are you unable to use the DAQmx API in your application development environment? 

 

  

Sorry, I don't know what that means.

 

I have solved the problem by installing LabVIEW 2009.  Thanks
