1. Introduction

This page allows you to download all web examples that were posted to NI.com for NI-DAQ also known as Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy).  This includes some examples posted by National Instruments, and some posted by customers to the former DevZone section of NI.com.  Hardware supported includes MIO, DIO, TIO, 653x devices and modules, plus AM9513, 8253, and STC chips.  The primary development system supported is LabVIEW, as noted, but there are some C, Measurement Studio and Visual Basic examples found in the 'NI-DAQ Examples for LabVIEW 6 and Later, or Text-Based'  download.  Please see the notes below in regards to legacy software, support and using sample code.

Once your download is complete, you can extract the files and then browse or search locally for examples to use as a reference.  The files are broken up by the version numbers associated with the example.  Within version type you will find a folder with an abbreviated article title containing an HTML file with a copy of the original description from the page, and any files associated with that page.

6. File Extraction/Copy Errors

If you receive a Windows error similar to 'Destination Path Too Long' or 'The file name(s) would be too long for the destination folder' when trying to extract or move this archive, you will need to move your directories folder levels up to create a shorter overall file path.  Folder and file names are based off example titles, with some being long.

7. NI Support

These files are provided to support customers who can not migrate from Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy).  National Instruments only provides limited support for Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy), and will not provide any support for these examples.  NI support will not convert between LabVIEW versions, however you may post a request to the NI.com Forums Version Conversion board.
