I've recently installed Labview 2018 and NI DAQmx 18.1.0, and I'm trying to run some code I previously wrote in Labview 2015. Upon opening the VI I get the warning "NI-DAQmx Driver support for LabVIEW 2018 is missing." However, DAQmx is installed, and I did install it after the Labview install. I've attached a screen shot. I'm trying to communicate with a NI USB-6212 DAQ device.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In your LabVIEW installation folder (Program Files, National Instruments, LabVIEW 2018) is there a "DAQmx" folder in vi.lib?
I would just try to install the DAQmx drivers again. It is possible that the LabVIEW 2018 Support was not installed.
I looked at the NI-DAQmx driver files I downloaded, and it turns out I downloaded NI-DAQmx Runtime, which does not include the application support files. I downloaded NI-DAQmx (only difference in the name was the lack of "Runtime") and repeated the installation. There was now an option to install support for LV2018, and it was checked by default. My program initializes without errors now. I still don't know why the NI Package Manager won't install the support files with NI-DAQmx or list it as an option, but I have a solution now. Thanks for the help.
