NI-VXI is the interface software for your National Instruments VXI controller. It provides the necessary driver to access devices on any VXI bus attached to your workstation. Using NI-VXI, you can control a VXI bus using National Instruments VXIpc embedded controllers, MXI-2 extender technology, VXI-USB controllers, VXI-8360 series controllers, or a combination of any of these controllers. Version 16.0 of this software supports Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. Refer to your hardware documentation for specific Operating System requirements.

Installation Instructions

The installation process for NI-VXI includes installing NI-VISA, MAX, the NI-VXI 16.0 driver, associated configuration files, and the NI-VXI API emulation layer included with NI-VXI 16.0. Optionally, the installer can also install development utilities and documentation related to the NI-VXI API. NI-VXI stores various configuration options and associated applications in a folder located by default in Program Files\National Instruments\VXI. You can also specify a different location to install these files. By default, the NI-VXI API emulation layer is installed. This library provides a familiar programming interface and utility package for users of older versions of NI-VXI. If you are not a current NI-VXI 1.x/2.x user, or if you currently use VISA as your programming interface, there is no need to install this option.
