Archived: Devices and Modules No Longer Supported in NI-DAQmx

NI does not actively maintain this document.

This content provides support for older products and technology, so you may notice outdated links or obsolete information about operating systems or other relevant products.


This article consolidates device and module model compatibility support that has been dropped in recent (17.5 and later) NI-DAQmx releases. Using these devices with NI-DAQmx in unsupported versions will result in devices that are missing or fail to show up in Windows Device Manager or NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX). LabVIEW or other environments calling these modules will report errors if updated to these versions of NI-DAQmx.


Reference the information on the NI Hardware and Operating System Compatibility page to ensure your selected hardware and driver combination is supported on your desired operating system.
