Accessing the Help

Refer to the Calibration Executive Help, accessible from Help»Calibration Executive Help, for information about Calibration Executive.

Automating the Installation of NI Products

You can automate the installation of most NI products using command-line arguments to suppress some or all of the installer user interface and dialog boxes. However, starting with the August 2012 releases (products using NI Installers version 3.1 or later), you may need to perform additional steps before or during a silent installation of NI software.

If the NI product you are installing uses Microsoft .NET 4.0, the .NET installer may run before any NI software installs and may require a reboot before the installation of NI software begins. To avoid a .NET reboot, install .NET 4.0 separately before you install NI software.

For more information about automating the installation of NI products, refer to the following KnowledgeBase articles:

  • For more information about silent installations of individual NI products, refer to KB 4CJDP38M, Customize and Automate Installation of a Single Installer.
  • For more information about silent installations of NI products in a suite, such as NI Developer Suite, refer to KB 4GGGDQH0, Customize and Automate Installation of a Suited Installer.
  • To determine what version of NI Installers your product contains, refer to KB 4CJDR18M, Determine Type and Version of My National Instruments Installer.

Using NI Software with Microsoft Windows 10

Microsoft Windows 10 is the latest version of the Windows operating system and features significant changes compared to previous versions. Windows 10 introduces several new capabilities and also combines features from both Windows 7 and Windows 8. For more information about NI support for Windows 10, visit

Using NI Software with Microsoft Windows 8.1

When you install NI software on Microsoft Windows 8.1, you will notice a few additional tiles in the Apps view, including shortcuts to NI application software products such as NI LabVIEW, Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX), and NI Launcher.

Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 Overview

Windows Server 2008 R2, now with Service Pack 1 (SP1) provides new virtualisation technology that enables you to deliver more advanced capabilities to your business for increased IT efficiency and agility. Whether you want to consolidate servers, build a private cloud or offer Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, the addition of these powerful virtualisation features enables you to take your datacentre and desktop virtualisation strategy to a new level.

Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 Product Overview
Windows 7 sp1 download x86

Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 builds on the award-winning foundation of Windows Server 2008, expanding existing technology and adding new features. Just a few of the enhancements in this release include new virtualisation tools consisting of an updated version of Hyper-V with Live Migration and Dynamic Memory, Remote Fx in Remote Desktop Services, improved power management, and added features with Windows 7 integration such as BranchCache and Direct Access. Have greater control and the ability to react to business needs faster than ever before with powerful tools such as Internet Information Services (IIS) version 7.5, updated Server Manager and Hyper-V platforms and Windows PowerShell version 2.0.

Virtualise your Server and Desktop Infrastructure

Virtualisation is a major part of today’s data centres. The operating efficiencies offered by virtualization allow organizations to dramatically reduce operational effort and power consumption. Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 provides the following virtualisation types: Client and Server virtualisation provided by Hyper-V and Presentation virtualisation with Remote Desktop Services.

  • New Virtualization Technology in Hyper-V

    Since the Windows Server 2008 release, Microsoft has introduced a new version of Hyper-V. Included as part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 operating system, Hyper-V contains a number of core areas of improvements for creating dynamic virtual data centres and cloud computing, namely private cloud. These improvements provide you with increased availability and performance, improved management, and simplified methods for deployment including live migration. And, when combined with System Center, you are able to build out a dedicated private cloud environment to transform the way you deliver IT services to the business, using the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) model. Learn more about Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1.

  • Expanded Features in Remote Desktop Services

    Remote Desktop Services provides users and administrators with both the features and the flexibility necessary to build the most robust access experience in any deployment scenario. To expand the Remote Desktop Services feature set, Microsoft has been investing in the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, also known as VDI. VDI is a centralized desktop delivery architecture, which enables Windows and other desktop environments to run and be managed in virtual machines on a centralized server. Learn more about the Virtualization Platform in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Improved Web Application Platform

Windows Server 2008 R2 includes many enhancements that make this release the most robust Windows Server Web application platform yet. It offers an updated Web server role, Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5, and greater support for .NET on Server Core. Design goals for IIS 7.5 concentrated on improvements that enable Web administrators to more easily deploy and manage Web applications that increase both reliability and scalability. Additionally, IIS 7.5 has streamlined management capabilities and provides more ways to customize your Web serving environment. The following improvements to IIS and the Windows Web platform are included in Windows Server 2008 R2:

Improved Power Management and Streamlined Management

The on-going management of servers in the data centre is one of the most time-consuming tasks facing IT professionals today. Any management strategy you deploy must support the management of both your physical and virtual environments. To help with this problem, Windows Server 2008 R2 has new features to reduce the on-going management of Windows Server 2008 R2 and to reduce the administrative effort for common day-to-day operational tasks. Learn more about Improving Power Management and Streamlining Management in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Increased Scalability and Reliability

Windows Server 2008 R2 is capable of unprecedented workload size, dynamic scalability, and across-the-board availability and reliability. A host of new and updated features will be available, including leveraging sophisticated CPU architectures, increased operating system componentisation, and improved performance and scalability for applications and services.
