LabVIEW is system engineering software designed for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights. There are many features in LabVIEW that are not in DAQExpress, including:
- The ability to control a third-party instrument through serial communication
- Advanced analysis libraries
- Advanced language features, such as event structures and object-oriented programming
- The ability to deploy your application as an executable
If you require any of these functions, we recommend you continue to use LabVIEW for your application.
You cannot open LabVIEW VIs or projects using DAQExpress. Similarly, you cannot open DAQExpress projects using LabVIEW.
If you are using LabVIEW NXG- the next generation version of LabVIEW- you can open your DAQExpress project in LabVIEW NXG to reuse your hardware and analysis configurations. However, it is not supported to open your LabVIEW NXG project in DAQExpress.
