I have an Ocean Optics Flame Spectrometer (Model: FLAME-S-XR1-ES, Serial #: FLMS07095) and currently using software OceanView 1.6.7. I want to control the spectrometer using LabVIEW. I found a driver here for Ocean Optics instruments but I am not sure if this driver is suitable or not for my device. Also, it would be very helpful if you guide me to some example LabVIEW program for a similar spectrometer.
Thank you very much.

Are you posting because you tried it and it didn't work? Or are you just asking because you want to save time before even attempting to try it?
Either way, if I remember right these drivers are ones that require that you change the driver used by Windows. Instead of using the one from the web site or CD from Ocean Optics, you will need to use a NI-generated INF file that sets up this device as a "USB RAW" VISA device. One you do that the drivers work pretty well, but by changing the driver it means you can't use the software that comes with the device without changing it back to the original drivers... making it a bit annoying to use with both.
