Before using the conversion utility to create a new instrument driver wrapper, please visit to see if an IVI or CVI instrument driver is available for your device.

This utility was created for developers of LabVIEW project-style instrument plug and play VISA based drivers who wish to provide a C interface, but do not develop a native C driver. By developing the C and LabVIEW interfaces together, it keeps the components synchronized, and eliminates the need for customers to create their own C interfaces. Vendors should develop and maintain the C wrapper files so that end users do not have to individually repeat the process.

If you are not an instrument vendor, we recommend that you use this utility only if you have both LabVIEW and C instrument driver expertise. You may need to edit the LabVIEW driver to prepare it for the tool or you may want to customize the generated C interface in LabWindows/CVI to further improve instrument driver ease-of-use.
After generation, the C interface should be tested with the instrument.
