I'm trying to use two PCI-6733 analog output boards under Win XP-64 and NI-DAQmx will not install on that OS. The knowledge base article
mentions that XP-64 is not "officially" supported. My question is: is there a workaround to installing the NI-DAQmx / NI-MAX components where I could try and see if my application would run, even if it's not officially supported?
Further details: I've been developing the application with NIDAQmx 8.8 and MS VC 6.0.
If it's not possible at all, is it possible to make it run under a virtual OS setup, like with VMWare Workstation or MS Virtual PC?
Thanks for your help.
You are correct that Windows XP x64 is not supported. I would just like to clarify why this is. XP x64 was released in close proximity to Vista x64. Because of this, the decision was made to develop our drivers and software to support Windows XP in a 32 bit capacity and Vista in both a 32 bit and 64 bit capacity. As such, we have many drivers that are either compatible or are in development for Windows Vista x64. These online articles cover our plans for expansion into the 64 bit realm.
There are currently no plans to introduce support for Windows XP x64. However, some of our customers have independently developed some applications that work successfully on Windows XP x64. Hopefully, some of the community members will be able to detail the successes they have experienced. Good luck!
