Uninstalling NI-DAQmx or Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy)

Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: 7.3
Primary Software Fixed Version: 7.3
Secondary Software: Driver Software>>NI-DAQmx

How do I uninstall NI-DAQmx or Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy)?

I. To remove NI-DAQmx or NI-DAQ 7.0 or later, complete the following steps:
  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Select Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features (depending on the version of Windows OS).
  3. Select National Instruments Software.


  5. Click Uninstall/Change.
  6. Select the version of NI-DAQmx or Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) to remove, and click Remove or Uninstall (depending on Windows OS version).


    II. To remove NI-DAQ 6.9.3 or earlier, complete the following steps:

    1. Open the Control Panel.
    2. Select Add/Remove Programs.
    3. Select the version of Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) to remove, and click Uninstall.

    Special Considerations:

    • With NI-DAQ 6.5 and later, installing a new version of Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) automatically overwrites the existing version. With versions earlier than NI-DAQ 6.5, remove the version currently on your computer before installing a newer version.
    • If NI-DAQ 6.8 is installed with LabVIEW 6.0, Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) does not appear in the Add/Remove Programs view in Control Panel. In this case, you must run the LabVIEW installer to modify/remove Traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy). Refer to KB 20TD9EHE (linked below) for more information.
