Description

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 MXI-2 extender technology, VXI-1394 controllers, VXI-8340 series controllers, or any combination of the three. Version 3.1 of this software supports the PCI-MXI-2 and VXI-834x under Windows 2000/NT/Me/98, and the VXI-1394 under Windows 2000/Me/98.

Installation Instructions

The installation process for NI-VXI includes installing NI-VISA, MAX, the NI-VXI 3.1 driver and associated configuration files, and the NI-VXI API emulation layer included with NI-VXI 3.1. 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.
