Description

Included Software

NI-RFSA 14.0—This software installation provides support for customers using NI RF vector signal analyzers or the RF input subsystem of vector signal transceivers (VSTs). To program the NI RF vector signal analyzer or NI RF VST, use the NI-RFSA API. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF vector signal analyzer or vector signal transceiver.

NI-RSFG 14.0—This software installation provides support for customers using NI RF signal generators or the RF output subsystem of vector signal transceivers (VSTs). To program the NI RF signal generator or NI RF VST, use the NI-RFSG API. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF signal generator or vector signal transceiver.

NI LabVIEW 2014 Instrument Design Libraries for Vector Signal Transceivers 14.0—This software installation provides support for customers who want to program the FPGA on NI RF VSTs using LabVIEW 2014. To program the FPGA on the VST, use the instrument design libraries and the LabVIEW 2014 FPGA Module. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF vector signal transceiver.

NI PXIe-5644R/5645R/5646R Instrument Design Libraries 13.5—This software installation provides support for customers who want to program the FPGA on NI RF VSTs using LabVIEW 2013 SP1. To program the FPGA on the VST, use the instrument design libraries and the LabVIEW 2013 SP1 FPGA Module. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF vector signal transceiver.

NI-RFmx SpecAn 1.1—This software installation provides support for customers who want to use NI-RFmx Spectral Analyzers Measurement functions in LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, C, and .NET environments.

NI-RFmx Demod 1.1—This software installation provides support for customers who want to use NI-RFmx Demodulation functions in LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, C, and .NET environments.

Modulation Toolkit (LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI)—This software installation provides additional modulation scheme software functionality for customers using NI RF vector signal generators, NI arbitrary waveform generators, NI RF vector signal analyzers, and NI high-speed digitizers.

Spectral Measurements Toolkit (LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI)—This software installation provides additional spectral measurement software functionality for customers using NI RF vector signal analyzers and NI high-speed digitizers.

Installation Instructions

When you insert the driver software DVD, the NI RF Device Drivers window appears. In this window, click Install RF Driver Software to begin installation. If the NI RF Device Drivers window does not appear, launch autorun.exe from the root directory of the driver software DVD.

System Requirements

This installation requires one of the following Microsoft operating systems:

  • Windows 8.1 (32-bit or 64-bit) *
  • Windows 8 (32-bit or 64-bit) *
  • Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows Vista (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (32-bit)
  • Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit) **
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

* For VST devices, LabVIEW FPGA compilation tools cannot be executed on a machine running Windows 8.1 or Windows 8. Refer to Cannot Compile FPGA VIs on a Windows 8 Computer for more information.

** Visit KnowledgeBase 54D9I6M6 for additional information about known issues using National Instruments driver software on Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit).

This installation requires that version 3.1 of the MSI (Windows Installer) Engine is installed on your computer. If you do not have MSI 3.1 or later, the installer updates the engine automatically and may require you to restart your computer.

Refer to your product-specific readme file for additional requirements.

Uninstallation Instructions

You can uninstall each NI RF device driver by selecting National Instruments Software in the Windows Add/Remove Programs application. Refer to your product-specific readme file for more information about product-specific uninstallation instructions.

Software Updates and Replacement Media

For the latest version of the NI RF hardware device drivers, visit ni.com/info and enter the Info Code RFDriverSuite to download the latest version.

If you require a replacement NI RF Device Driver DVD, visit ni.com/info and enter the Info Code media for instructions on obtaining a replacement.

Automating the Installation of NI Products

You can automate the installation of most NI products using command-line arguments to suppress some or all of the installer user interface and dialog boxes. However, starting with the August 2012 releases (products using NI Installers version 3.1 or later), you may need to perform additional steps before or during a silent installation of NI software.

If the NI product you are installing uses Microsoft .NET 4.0, the .NET installer may run before any NI software installs and may require a reboot before the installation of NI software begins. To avoid a .NET reboot, install .NET 4.0 separately before you install NI software.

For more information about automating the installation of NI products, refer to the following KnowledgeBase articles:


Installation Instructions

  1. Download and Extract RFDRVSUITE201409.zip into a temporary location.
  2. Launch setup.exe

To conserve disk space you can delete the downloaded .zip file, however it is recommended that you keep the extracted installation files in case you need to add features from the NI-RFSA distribution in the future, or plan to create your own installers using National Instruments development environments.
