Where is the help?

I have installed NI-DAQmx and do develop with Visual Studio 2012. Where can I find an API documentation for NI-DAQmx? The NI website tells me to look at Start»All Programs»National Instruments»Measurement Studio 2010 for Visual Studio 2010»Measurement Studio Documentation. but there is no such folder in my start menu!.

I think you may want the NI-DAQmx documentation (not Measurement Studio).


It can be found at Start»All Programs»National Instruments»NI-DAQmx»Text-Based Code Support.


This includes links for .NET and ANSI C Help Files and Examples.

Yes, you are right. I want the Ni-DAQmx documentation. But I do not even find the folder Start»All Programs»National Instruments on my machine.

The default location is C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\NI-DAQ for installing the example files. If this does not show up you most likely need to reinstall NI-DAQmx with default options.

Re-installing NiDAQmx did the trick! Everything fine now. Thank you very much for the support.

Have to come back to this one: After reinstalling I now have a "Start --> All Programs --> National Instruments --> NI-DAQ" folder but still I can not find a description of the API. Exmaple: I would like to get a documenation of the class "DaqSystem" where all members of that class are described.

what about Start --> All Programs --> National Instruments --> NI-DAQ --> Text based Code Support --> NI DAQmx C Reference Help?

Do you want to write .NET or C code?
