NI FlexRIO Driver Supported Versions for FlexRIO Adapters and Modules

Overview

This page shows the supported versions of NI FlexRIO drivers required for integrated and modular FlexRIO hardware. Reference this information to ensure you install the correct driver version when upgrading or updating your system, when migrating or porting code to a new system, or after the purchase and installation of new NI hardware. Using incompatible versions may result in errors, the inability for your operating system to recognize or detect and then find a driver for your device, or missing devices in NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).

For information on NI FlexRIO Hardware Compatibility see NI FlexRIO Adapter and NI FlexRIO FPGA Module Compatibility.

Note that this article replaces KnowledgeBase 6CBED5QE: What Adapter Modules Are Supported on my NI FlexRIO? Some NI manuals may still reference the previous document. If you were redirected from the previous KnowledgeBase URL, please update your bookmarks accordingly.

How to Use this Page

  1. Identify your FlexRIO hardware. 
  2. Select which FlexRIO driver you plan to use in your system and follow the corresponding steps:
     

NI FlexRIO Driver: Use the following steps to identify a NI FlexRIO Driver that is compatible with your hardware:

  1. Use the following NI FlexRIO compatibility tables to identify the driver versions compatible with your FlexRIO hardware. If you have a FlexRIO system with modular I/O (FlexRIO Adapter with FlexRIO FPGA Module or Controller for FlexRIO) make sure the driver version is compatible with both. In the Downloads section at the bottom of this page, you can download a copy of these tables that includes older software versions.
  2. Install a compatible version of the NI FlexRIO driver.
     

NI FlexRIO Adapter Module Support Driver: The FlexRIO Adapter Module Support Driver has been deprecated and replaced by the NI FlexRIO Driver. If you are not able to update your system to the NI FlexRIO Driver, use the following steps to identify compatible driver versions for your system:

  1. Download the FlexRIO Adapter Module Driver Supported Versions for FlexRIO Adapters and Modules.xlsx in the Downloads section.
  2. Use the table to identify the driver versions compatible with your FlexRIO Adapter Module.
  3. Install a compatible version of the NI-RIO and NI FlexRIO Adapter Module Support driver.
