The Interactive Control Panel is only available in NI-DAQmx Base. It is not available for NI-DAQmx. NI-DAQmx Base offers a subset of NI-DAQmx functionality on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows Mobile, and Windows CE OSs.
The Interactive Control Panel is an example program that ships with the NI-DAQmx Base driver software and provides users with a quick-start way to begin using their new USB-6501, USB-6008, or USB-6009 hardware. The Interactive Control Panel removes the need for new users to write their own LabVIEW code in order to use their new USB-6501, USB-6008, or USB-6009 hardware.
To locate the Interactive Control Panel, open the appropriate .llb file in the following file path:
If you are missing this file path extension, you will need to install the current version of NI-DAQmx Base from the National Instruments website. You can find the current version by navigating to www.ni.com/support, clicking on the Drivers and Updates link, and typing "DAQmx Base" in the search field. For those users running LabVIEW 8.2, the appropriate .llb files are attached to this KB for convenience.
If you are using the NI-DAQmx driver suite, the USB6008/6009 panel has been ported over to allow you to use it without NI-DAQmx Base. This version of the code has some additional functionality including the ability to adjust the sample rate, and disable unused ports for better performance.
