USB-6000 background apps

Why does it take 16 background processes to run my USB DAQ?  I didn't even load all the $h!+ from the CD.

What processes do you mean?

 

Is the device working properly?

I see in my System Config (msconfig) the following NI tasks:

NI PSP Servoce Locator

NI Time Synchronixation

NI PXI Resouce Manager

NI Service Locator

NI Device Loader

NI Cinfiguration Manager

NI Application Web Server

NI Domain Service

NI License Server

NI mDNS Responder Service

NI LXI Discovery Service

NI Network Discovery

NI System Web Server

NI Variable Engine

nidevmon

NIUpdateService

NI Error Reporting

 

What I find troubling is I don't have LXI, PXI,LabVIEW and don't plan on using the DAQ over the web or network. The updater wanted to get updates for LabVIEW that is not even on my machine!  The instrument will be in a standalone machine measuring voltage controlled with a ,Net C# program.  Which of these services are absolutely necessary?

 

Regards,

David Hodgkins

You can decide for yourself which services you'd like to stop based on their functionality.

The only thing you should need is the NI-DAQmx driver: http://search.ni.com/nisearch/app/main/p/bot/no/ap/tech/lang/en/pg/1/sn/catnav:du/q/daqmx/

Hey David,

 

I would recommend the latest current version of DAQmx.

 

As of October 2013 this is DAQmx 9.8: http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/4297/lang/en
