Problem: How do I uninstall NI-DAQ 6.8, which is installed by LabVIEW 6.0? I cannot find NI-DAQ 6.8 in the Add/Remove Programs view in the Control Panel.

Solution: Because NI-DAQ 6.8 is integrated in the LabVIEW 6.0 installer, you must run the LabVIEW installer to modify or remove NI-DAQ 6.8. Complete the following steps to remove NI-DAQ 6.8.
  1. Open the Add/Remove Programs view in the Control Panel.
  2. Select NI LabVIEW 6.0 and click the Add/Remove button.
    Windows 2000 users must click the Change. A window that is almost identical to the LabVIEW 6.0 Installation Wizard appears.
  3. Click the Add/Remove button in the Installation Wizard window to enter the LabVIEW 6i Setup.
  4. Inside the LabVIEW 6i Setup, click the NI-DAQ 6.8 directory to open a menu with the following options:
    • Install on local hard drive.
    • Install to run from a network.
    • Make the entire feature unavailable.
  5. Select Make entire feature unavailable. Do not select the icon next to other options to avoid removing other features or LabVIEW itself.
  6. A red X appears by the name of features that will be removed.
  7. Click Next, which opens a window that asks if you want to complete the installation. Click Next again to remove the selected features.
  8. Restart your computer.

Note: These steps also apply to other components installed by LabVIEW 6.0. To remove components other than NI-DAQ 6.8, select the component you want to remove instead of NI-DAQ 6.8 in step 4.
