I have downloaded and installed labview_80.exe and NIDAQ800.zip. I have

activated the product. When I try to use the Instrument I/O

Assistant I get and error message that says "Measurement &

Automation Explorer or the I/O Assistant is not installed

correctly. Please install these from the Labview Driver

CD." I do not have Cds. Is there another file I need to

download from NI ? Is all of Labview 8 and its support files

    • Hi ProfEdyB,

      To use the I/O Assistant, you will need the NI-488.2 and the NI-VISA drivers

      . I have included links to each of these below. Once these

      are installed, you may try to access the IO Assistant again to see if that c

      orrects the problem (have L

      abVIEW closed completely when installing these drivers). You may still

      need a driver CD to get it to work properly. I have also included a l

      ink to an older version of the Driver CD, but this will install an

      older version of the I/O A

      ssistant. If these options do not work for you, please call us and req

      uest that a driver CD be sent to you.

      Best of luck and let me know if you have any other questions or need any add

      itional help on this issue.

    • Chris,Thank you for the help. I currently have loaded with LabVIEW8 VI

      SA version 3.4.1, MAX version 4, and 488.2 Version 2.4. I beleive 

      ; the I/O Asisstant is version 1.0.1.With this configuaration I have been un

      able to get the I/O assista

      nt to work on several differrent machines. I get an error message that says

      either MAX of IOA is not loaded properly and to relaod it from CD. I h

      ave had a few E-mails with Angela M. from tech support to try and resolve th

      e problem, but so far to no

      avail. I will try downloading the new drivers you have posted.Thanks A
