This page shows supported versions of the NI-DAQmx hardware driver with the Microsoft Windows operating system. Reference this information to ensure you install the correct version when upgrading or updating your operating system, or when migrating or porting code to a new system. Using incompatible versions may result in errors, the inability for Windows to recognize or detect and then find a driver for your device, or missing devices in Windows Device Manager or NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).
Note that this article replaces KnowledgeBase 6HQ994XC: NI-DAQmx and Windows Version Compatibility. Some NI manuals may still reference the previous document. If you were redirected from the previous KnowledgeBase URL, please update your bookmarks accordingly.
You should consider the compatibility of the application with which you intend to utilize the DAQmx drivers, not just the operating system. See the Related Links section for more information, and the DAQmx readme for compatibility information related to specific devices.
For information about older NI-DAQmx or Windows versions compatibility, see the DAQmx Windows Compatibility Table attachment in the Downloads section of this document.
