I can not believe I need to ask this question, but after extensive search I figured I need to ask - sorry for such a simple question.
I just got my NI-9222 and NI-9263, they come with VGA port. So how should I connect them to my PC? It is hard to find VGA cable these days so I just tried whatever I have in hand - VGA/HDMI, VGA/D; MAX can not find the device after I plug in.
I checked the user manual and installation guide, and can not find any related information. There are VGA/USB, RS485/USB adapter out there , but I want to make sure which ones to use before I rush order something.

Those are NOT VGA signals. Yes, they do use a similar connector. If you are trying to use DAQmx with these modules, then you need a cDAQ chassis. They range from USB to Ethernet connections and single slot to 14 slot. Based on your very simple description, I would probably go with a cDAQ-9174, which is a 4 slot USB chassis.
I agree with everything Crossrulz said, you need a chassis to be able to use those modules. Additionally for future reference so you're not in a similar situation again, on our website whenever you go to purchase a module that is designed to be part of a larger system, the 'configure system' option at the bottom of the product page will help you figure out everything you need to get a full system working.
