Licensing Options and Support for NI DAQExpress


Installing DAQExpress

DAQExpress is only supported on 64-bit versions of Windows, and can be installed from the DAQExpress download page, the NI-DAQmx Driver DVD included with supported DAQ hardware, or through the NI Package Manager.

Additional information about known issues, patches, and system compatibility may be found on the readme page.

Logging In to DAQExpress

NI recommends you activate NI DAQExpress by logging in to the software using your NI user profile. You will be prompted with the window pictured below when launching DAQExpress for the first time.

Logging in provides full functionality from the software free of interruption if you are connected to the Internet. If you disconnect from the Internet, you can continue to use DAQExpress free for three months, after which you will be required to restore your Internet connection and log in again.

Purchasing a License 

If you cannot access the Internet periodically to log in using your profile, you can purchase a license that provides a serial number you can use to activate DAQExpress without logging in. To learn more about purchasing a license of DAQExpress, please contact your local sales office. Note that the offline license is only available for versions 2.0 and earlier.
