Auto-discover connected MCC hardware using LabVIEW



Is there a LabVIEW method that replicates the following call I'm seeing in the Python and C# posts?


I did try a CLF node using the DaqDevInfo.dll which does include the "GetDaqDeviceInventory" function name, but without a header file I have no idea what parameters the function is expecting or returning

Hello @jrayeske

no, there is no ul.get_daq_device_inventory(InterfaceType.USB) for LabVIEW.  The device must be present in InstaCal.

Direct access to the DLLs is not supported.  Case in point, you don't ever access devices via DaqDevInfo.dll.  As stated, it is not supported, but if you really, REALLY want to,

then you would use cbw32.DLL for 32 bit LabVIEW or cbw64 on 64 bit LabVIEW. 

header file?  go to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Measurement Computing\DAQ\C for cbw.h.

Documentation on all function calls is found in https://www.mccdaq.com/pdfs/manuals/Mcculw_WebHelp/ULStart.htm

This is assuming you want to take this on, but as stated, Measurement Computing does not offer support for using our DLLs in LabVIEW.  MCC offers the ULx for NI LabVIEW, that we do support.

I just want to be clear on that.
