Thank you for using NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers (the Instrument Design Libraries). This file contains important information about the Instrument Design Libraries and is organized into the following sections:
NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 19.0 adds support for LabVIEW 2019 (32-bit or 64-bit).
The Instrument Design Libraries support the PXIe-5624 IF digitizer.
Note Memory requirements vary according to both the FPGA target and the FPGA VI you create for that target. Additional RAM beyond the recommended system requirements may be necessary to compile multiple FPGA images concurrently. Refer to the LabVIEW FPGA Module Readme for more information about determining your memory needs for FPGA VI compilation.
Note You should install LabVIEW and LabVIEW FPGA (recommended) before installing the Instrument Design Libraries. To add support for ADEs installed after installing the Instrument Design Libraries, modify your Instrument Design Libraries installation or relaunch the Instrument Design Libraries installer.
Note LabVIEW 2019 (32-bit or 64-bit) is the only supported version of LabVIEW for NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 19.0.
NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 19.0 supports the following operating systems:
1 NI software installs VC2015 Runtime and .NET 4.6.2. Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 require Microsoft updates to support these items. Refer to Microsoft KB2919442 and KB2919355 for more information about how to install these updates.
2 NI software is signed with a SHA-256 certificate. Windows 7 SP1, Windows Embedded Standard 7 SP1, and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 require Microsoft updates to support SHA-256. Refer to Microsoft KB3033929 and KB3125574 for more information about how to install these updates.
Note In 2019, NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers dropped support for all 32-bit Windows operating systems. NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers will not install or run on an unsupported OS. Refer to NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers Drops Support for Windows 7 (64-Bit) and Windows Server 2008 R2 in 2021 for information about future OS support.

The Instrument Design Libraries palette VIs are available on the host from the Functions»FPGA Interface»Software-Designed Instruments»IF Digitizers palette. For FPGA VIs, palettes specific to the FPGA target are available from the Functions palette.
To access the LabVIEW sample projects and templates from the Create Project dialog box, select Sample Projects»IF Digitizers in the left pane and navigate to the project that best matches your application requirements.
When migrating from NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 15.0 or earlier, note that the new Instruction Framework library has stricter requirements about closing sessions. To avoid leaking Instruction Framework sessions, be sure to generate new 19.0 sample projects and call the sample-project Close Session VI as they illustrate.
If you are not using a sample project directly, follow the example of the sample-project Close Session VI in your own code. After closing all other instrument design libraries that depend on them:
Refer to the NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 19.0 page online for a list of known issues.
NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 19.0 does not include any bug fixes.
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.
If the NI product you are installing uses Microsoft .NET 4.6.2, the .NET installer may run before any NI software installs and may require a reboot before the installation of NI software begins. To avoid a .NET reboot, install .NET 4.6.2 separately before you install NI software.
For more information about automating the installation of NI products, refer to Automating an Installer in the NI Package Manager manual.
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 NI 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. For more information about NI support for Windows 8.1, visit ni.com/windows8.
NI LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers will drop support for Windows 7 (64-bit) and Windows Server 2008 R2 starting in 2021. Versions of this product that ship after May 1, 2021, will not install or run on these operating systems. For detailed information about NI operating system support, visit ni.com/r/win32bitsupport.
