PXI-9 specification

Does NI support the PXI-9 Trigger Management Specification? If not (what I actually see), is there any time frame when it will be available? Or maybe I just need to download some extension?




I got the latest software installed (VISA 5.4 & NIDAQmx 9.8), but there is no PXI-9 DLL module registered in the system. In my Registry I see just:


HKLM\Software\PXISA\Services\System Modules


HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\PXISA\Services\Peripheral Modules

HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\PXISA\Services\Resource Managers

HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\PXISA\Services\System Modules


There are no anticipated:


HKLM\Software\PXISA\Services\Trigger Managers

HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\PXISA\Services\Trigger Managers


And obviously the system description file created by the PXI resource manager does not contain the [TriggerManager] tag.

NI supports the PXI-9 Trigger Manager specification with PXI Platform Services versions 4.0 and newer. What version do you have installed?


If you don't have it, you can download it here http://www.ni.com/download/pxi-platform-services-4.0/4353/en/

Post #1 and first Kudo. Thank you sir. 


My PXI Platform Services version was 3.2.3. I don't know why it was not auto updated. The Update Service did not list it - I mean it said I was completely up-to-date. Now I got version 4.0 and Trigger Manager service is available.
