Export the hardware configuration of your system as an NI Hardware Configuration file (.nihwcfg) to capture hardware dependencies.

  1. Navigate to either the Live view or Design view, depending on where your target's hardware configuration is in the project.
  2. On the document toolbar, select Export»NI Hardware Configuration file (.nihwcfg).
  3. If the SystemDesigner view you have open contains more than one target, select the target whose hardware configuration you want to export.

    In the Live view, the only supported system is This Computer.

  4. Select or deselect the hardware configuration you need to include for your project and click OK.
  5. Select the location to save the NI Hardware Configuration file on your local machine and click OK.
  6. Navigate to where you saved the NI Hardware Configuration file and send a copy of it to the system that will use it.
After you export the NI Hardware Configuration file, double-click the file to launch the NI Hardware Configuration Importer to apply the hardware dependencies.

To successfully import hardware dependencies, verify the appropriate drivers and NI System Configuration are installed.
