ULx for NI LabVIEW not Recognizing LabVIEW

Mackenzie Cox


In order to use my measurement computing DAQ with LabVIEW, I have to have this "ULx for NI LabVIEW" software installed to bridge the gap between the two products. I have to have LabVIEW installed before installing the MC software, which I have done, but the MC software is not recognizing that I have already installed LabVIEW and therefore will not install the software.

How can I get it to recognize that I already have LabVIEW installed?

Hello @Mackenzie Cox.

Which version of LabVIEW do you have installed?  At this time, 'ULx for NI LabVIEW' is not supported under LabVIEW 2022; only supported for LabVIEW 2010 to LabVIEW 2021.  Have you installed the current MCC DAQ software v6.73?  If not, here is a link to download and then install the software, which allows a user to select 'ULx for NI LabVIEW' as part of the installation. 


As you pointed out, LabVIEW must reside on the target system before 'ULx for NI LabVIEW' can be installed. 

Next, before launching LabVIEW, connect your MCC daq device (which model?) to the target system and then open MCC's InstaCal utility.  InstaCal's executable file, 'inscal32.exe', is located in the 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Measurement Computing\DAQ' folder.  Your daq device should appear in the list before you can use LabVIEW.  Let us know if it does not appear in the list.  If the device does appear in the list, then close InstaCal and proceed to LabVIEW.  There are canned examples for 'ULx for NI LabVIEW' in the ULx subfolder for LabVIEW, i.e. 'C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2020\examples\ULx'.
