Installation Instructions

This product is obsolete. For new designs, NI recommends NI-RFmx SpecAn.


Perform the following steps to install NI Spectral Measurements Toolkit:

  1. Download and run the self-extracting executable NISMT1600.exe. This will install NI Spectral Measurements Toolkit 16.0 and all necessary driver files.

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