error imaq for usb cameras - Jan 15, 2016
You must have vision 7.1 or higher with LabVIEW 7.0 or higher, or you must have Vission Assistant 7.0 or higher installed to use this add-on
I have labview 8.5 and vission assistant 8.0 , and I don't understand the generated error.
Handling the DLLs - Jun 5, 2015
Also, when you have successfully unpacked the installer, you should probably register both dlls after you placed them in the system32 folder. To do that open the cmd-window, go to where the dlls are (cd C:\windows\system32) and type regsvr32 dllname.dll in the cmd interface.
You also might have to update the Call Library Function Nodes in all the IMAQ USB VIs in the imaqUSB.llb. Just open the VIs, view the Block Diagram (ctrl+e) and double-click the Call Library Function Node. Then put in the location (system32) of the desired dll-file. Restart LabView.
Use Universal Extractor to install the Package for LabVIEW 2009 and higher - Jun 5, 2015
The problem with this installer is, that it only has paths for LV Versions up to 8.6. Newer Versions will not be found and therefore the files are not installed. This is I think due to the already inbuilt USB module since LV 2009, where the IMAQ USB would not be necessary anymore. However, if you want to use old VIs that need VIs from the imaqUSB.lbb, you might have a problem.
If the manual extraction described below via the command line interface fails to work, like in my case, you can use the tool "universal extractor" found here:
Just extract the installer somewhere and then copy or move the needed files to the right places. The extracted folder structure and folder names should tell you where.

modified installer to remedy the problem. I

The installer does create a folder named
"NI-IMAQ for USB" but I just move the files
out of that folder and into the "imaqUSB"
folder I created.

Windows 7 incompatibility? - Feb 19, 2010
I have to use Windows 7 Starter on a
notebook. I managed to install the Vision
module, I can see many VIs in the function
palette under the Vision tab.
But when I try to install the IMAQ-USB
extension, I think it fails.
The ImageDirectShowDll and ~Export.dll is
copied to the system32 dir, but is not
registered, and the regsvr32 gives an error
msg, when I try to reg. it manually.
The "NI-IMAQ for USB" directory, under the
program files\National Instruments, contains
only the manual pdf, and nothing else.
There is no corresponding example file under
the IMAQ\Examples dir, only the Imaq related
Is there an ni_imaq_usb_installer.exe which
works with Windows 7 (Starter) ?
Thanks a lot, in advance,

Fix for LV 8.5 - Sep 12, 2007
Worked on 8.20. Didn't work on 8.5 until
I made some changes.
1. Rename the "LabVIEW 8.5" folder
to "LabVIEW 8.2" (If you have LabVIEW
8.2 still installed, rename that folder to
something else first)
2. Install the EXE file for USB.
3. Change LabVIEW 8.5 folder back
to "LabVIEW 8.5"
4. Find "vision7.mnu" and copy it into
this directory: C:\Program Files\National
Step 4 puts the icon back into the
submenu in Vision+Motion.
