NI-Serial Supported Versions for Serial Devices and Modules

Visão geral

This page shows the supported versions of NI-Serial are required with NI Serial devices or modules. 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).
