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 page shows supported versions of the NI-DAQmx hardware driver with support for LabVIEW NXG Development System. Reference this information to ensure you install the correct version when upgrading or updating your system or software. Using incompatible versions may result in errors, missing LabVIEW palettes or functions, or devices and tasks failing to show up in NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) or the Hardware tab of LabVIEW NXG.

NI-DAQmx Compatibility: Upgrades

The releases of DAQmx that do not add LabVIEW NXG support should not break or inhibit the previous DAQmx support for LabVIEW NXG that was installed. DAQmx runtimes will be upgraded, but will not upgrade or add new hardware features or support. For example, a system with LabVIEW NXG 1.0 can upgrade to DAQmx 17.1, but will not be able to use the PXIe-4309 in LabVIEW NXG 1.0 since hardware support was added in DAQmx 17.1.
