Overview

This page shows supported versions of the NI-DAQmx Base hardware driver with the MacOS operating system. Reference this information to ensure you install the correct version when upgrading or updating your operating system, or when migrating or porting code to a new system. Using incompatible versions may result in errors, the inability for MacOS to recognize or detect and then find a driver for your device, or missing devices.

1. NI-DAQmx Base versus NI-DAQmx

NI-DAQmx Base offers a subset of NI-DAQmx functionality on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows Mobile, and Windows CE OSs. Application development is simple, using the clean, concise programming interface, programmatic channel and task creation, and tight integration with NI LabVIEW. This driver software includes ready-to-use LabVIEW VIs and C function examples similar to those included in the full-featured NI-DAQmx software.

National Instruments recommends developers creating applications for Windows and Linux-based systems to instead use the full-featured NI-DAQmx distribution.  Click here to learn more about NI-DAQmx compatibility with LabVIEW and Windows.

 

Note: NI-DAQmx Base is compatible with macOS 10.14 and earlier versions - Check macOS compatibility for all supported versions for this driver. For more information, please read the End-of-Life Announcement for DAQmx Base Driver.
