Can I install NI software on the controller that is running the firmware server of the 812xx SW?
Yes, but you may have to take certain precautions or remedial measures. The installation of LabView, LabWindows or the NI GPIB drivers by default installs NI-VISA. NI-VISA overwrites our "visa32.dll" and renders our VISA inoperative. If the installation process allows you to select whether or not you wish to install VISA, do not install it. If you have no choice, go ahead and install the NI software and then uninstall NI-VISA. Finally, you will have to re install the Agilent I/O libraries and reconfigure the appropriate ports. Agilent VISA is required to talk to the VXI modules.
