driver download size


Recommended Posts

Am I missing something? Do I really need need the entire 311 MB NI Serial software just to install drivers for the NI USB-232 device?

I know it comes with drivers on CD, but by the time I ever get around to using the hardware I've purchased, the drivers on CD are out of date!

(perhaps I am just spoiled now that Windows 7 automatically finds and installs drivers for so many of the other devices we use)

In hind site, I could have grabbed the latest Device Driver DVD from the Developer Suite. (dooh!)

Still... 311MB for a USB - Serial converter? Then about 20 minutes for installation time? Is it really necessary?

You will be glad to know there is a VISA Run Time @ ~40MB which will keep your Application Installer down in size.
