NI LabVIEW 2019 Instrument Design Libraries for High-Speed Serial Instruments 19.0 versions are aligned with the versions of major NI application software products. This alignment gives you information about the year the driver was released and the most recent software version the driver was designed to work with. Driver versions start with a two-digit year indicator: <ProductName><Year-BasedVersion>. For example, NI LabVIEW 2016 Instrument Design Libraries 16.0 is the version released with LabVIEW 2016.
Complete the following steps to install NI LabVIEW 2019 Instrument Design Libraries for High-Speed Serial Instruments 19.0.
Note The niSi53xxClockConfig.dll file included as part of the NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for High-Speed Serial Instruments software may be used only in the use of the NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for High-Speed Serial Instruments software with the Silicon Labs device in the PXIe-6591R, PXIe-6592R, and PXIe-7902 products.
You can access the bug fixes and software and documentation known issues lists online at ni.com/info by entering Info Code exty47.
You can automate the installation of most NI products using command-line arguments to suppress some or all of the installer user interface and dialog boxes. However, starting with the August 2012 releases (products using NI Installers version 3.1 or later), you may need to perform additional steps before or during a silent installation of NI software.
For more information about automating the installation of NI products, refer to the following KnowledgeBase articles:
Microsoft Windows 10 is the latest version of the Windows operating system and features significant changes compared to previous versions. Windows 10 introduces several new capabilities and also combines features from both Windows 7 and Windows 8. For more information about NI support for Windows 10, visit ni.com/windows10.
When you install National Instruments software on Microsoft Windows 8.1, you will notice a few additional tiles in the Apps view, including shortcuts to NI application software products such as NI LabVIEW, Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX), and NI Launcher.
NI Launcher helps you find and launch installed NI products. It provides you with a method of finding NI products similar to the Start menu in previous versions of Microsoft Windows. To use NI Launcher, click the NI Launcher tile in the Apps view. NI Launcher launches the desktop and opens a menu containing a list of NI products. Click any NI product to launch it.
|Note NI MAX does not appear as a desktop shortcut when installed on Microsoft Windows 8.1. You can launch NI MAX either from the Apps view or from within NI Launcher.|
For convenience, you can pin your most-used NI applications, such as MAX, to either the Start screen or the Taskbar on the desktop, as necessary:
|Current Application||Icon Location||Pin to Action|
|Windows 8.1 Desktop||Desktop Taskbar||Right-click application and select Pin to Taskbar.|
|Windows 8.1 Desktop||Start screen||Right-click application and select Pin to Start.|
|Windows 8.1 Start screen||Desktop Taskbar||Right-click application and select Pin to taskbar from the menu bar on the bottom of the screen.|
If you want to find a particular application or related files, such as documentation files, from the Start screen, you can access all installed files from the Apps view. To get to the Apps view, right-click anywhere on the Start screen and click the down arrow on the bottom left of the screen.
