How do I enable DAQ Assistant in LabView Student Edition?

Hello.  I'm using Lab View 7.1.1 Student Edition with a PCI-4472 ADC and PCI-6711 ADC.  I'm attempting to use the Daq Assistant according to a tutorial I found on the NI site.  
Unfotunately I have no DAQ Assistant option.  I found some documentation suggesting that I needed the NI Device driver CD available from the FTP site.  However this only contained outdated versions of the DAQmx (I had version 8) and VISA programs, which I have already installed.  To be sure, I installed it anyway, but with no change.
At this point I don't understand why I am having such trouble with the DAQ Assistant.  In my previous experience with LabView elsewhere, the feature just worked.

DAQmx 8 is what you need for the DAQ Assistant and all DAQ related functions and it is available for download <a href="http://digital.ni.com/softlib.nsf/websearch/4c9e45f6ee5c29f98625708900712cbc" target="_blank">here</a>. 

Before you get to deep into the DAQ Assistant, try looking through the
Exmaple VIs (Help menu&gt;Find Examples) to see how to do data
acquisition without the DAQ Assistant. The DAQ Assistant is OK for
something quick you're not going to save and reuse, but if you're
building an application, you should learn how to use teh DAQmx VIs

Sorry, I missed the part where you said you already had it installed. I must be reading too fast.

Any version of DAQmx will give you the DAQ Assistant. You should be able to find it two spots as shown in the images below.

If they're not there, something didn't go right during the install. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling.

Let us know how it works out.

Thanks for the help.&nbsp; My Input menu just does not have the DAQ Assist:
<img src="http://www.u.arizona.edu/~mikeg/pics/missing.PNG"> 
I think I have some idea why.&nbsp; I tried out the example browser as suggested, and none of the VIs in it work.&nbsp; It claims that it can't find the file.&nbsp; However the files do exist on my hard disk in the proper directory.&nbsp; This is pretty normal for me, I just formatted and am now reinstalling because I had this problem on the previous install.&nbsp; But more interesting, if I browse and run the VI directly, it starts to load, but is missing DAQmx files:
<img src="http://www.u.arizona.edu/~mikeg/pics/Error2.PNG"> 
In fact, that entire folder does not exist!&nbsp;
Can someone shed some light on the issue?&nbsp; Although the entire DAQmx folder is missing, I really do have DAQmx 8 installed, and I can even load up Measurement and Automation Explorer, browse to DAQmx devices and view the input from my function generator.
Thanks again.

If you don't have the DAQmx directory in the vi.lib directory, the install definately didn't go right. 

I'd try uninstalling DAQmx, download a new copy and reinstall.

If that doesn't do it, I'm pretty much at a loss. I've seen some other
threads having a similar problem. I'll try and find them and see what

Time in LabVIEW DAQ Assistant and Write LabVIEW file
Hello all, I would be extremely grateful for your assistance in helping me understand the timing in LabVIEW. Here are the details of the system. The data acquisition is done using&nbsp;a simple LabVIEW 8.2 based program consisting of a DAQ Assistant VI and a Write to Measurement File VI, which writes data in TDM format (binary with XML header). The hardware consists of a 1042Q chassis that contains 2 PXI-6133 cards. 16 transducers are connected to these 8 channel cards. The chassis is connected to a PC by means of MXI-4 fiber optic cable and a PCI-8336 card. &nbsp; I would like to samp...

Re: LabVIEW and LabVIEW RT?
Hello Iman, I will try to illustrate it with an example since it all will depend on the type of application you would like to implement. Let's say you would like to implement an application where you log data, maybe exchange data with databases and you acquire a bunch of data points at a time not performing any type of control and where high determinism is&nbsp;not needed. In this case LabVIEW for Windows work great. If you on the other hand would like to implement a closed-loop application where you need high determinism and reliability and will acquire data point by point you would u...

DAQ assistant with AT-MIO-16E-2 board LabVIEW 7.1

Therefore that seems to be all right. &nbsp; But then if I try to put in the DAQ assistant into a VI and try to s...

How to save in labview 7, from labview 8
Need to open my LV 8 VI in LV7, due to different plattforms... &nbsp; How do I make it possible? Hi, You will have to save out your VI&nbsp;using LabVIEW 8 first, select the Save with options. Then you can select the previous version, which probably is 7.1. ( You will have to repeat the procedure using LV7.1) If you have used any of the new functions and featured in your VI(s), then these will be lost when you save backwards. Hope this helps Regards Ray Farmer Hi Ray, 1) I was just trying your advice on my system and I don't see 'Save with Option' .&nbsp; There is Save, and Save As.. 2) I have a llb file and I wish to know which version it is...how can I find out?&nbsp; (I'm using 8.01).&nbsp; I suspect it is 7.1 and I get bunch of errors when it opens. 3) If the vi is 7.1, will LabView automatically convert it to 8.0? Thanks Rafi &nbsp; p.s. I'm mainly a CVI developer, and apologize for the "basic" questions... Rafi, Thats the trouble when you dont have labview in front of you. Looking at the manual chapter 7-7, there should, be under menu item File a 'Save&nbsp;For Previous Version'. I think under the VI Properties, under the change history,&nbsp;you should be able to find out what version it is. LabVIEW will try to convert automatically, but there are some issue that it cannot cope with. The release notes should identify these. Regards Ray Farmer &nbsp; ...
