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-1394 controllers, VXI-8340 series controllers, VXI-USB controllers, VXI-8360 series controllers, or a combination of any of these controllers. Version 3.5.2 of this software supports Windows XP and Windows 2000. 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 3 driver and associated configuration files, and the NI-VXI API emulation layer included with NI-VXI 3. 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.

1. Create a temporary folder on your local hard drive 2. Extract the file into the folder created in Step 1. This will create the installation files necessary for installing NI-VXI 3. Review ReadMe.txt located in the extracted folder 4. Run setup.exe to launch the NI-VXI installer
