Does the .NET API work with the DI-5001 ? I would like to incorporate this product in the software we are creating.

Thank you,

No, the .NET SDK API we provide only supports the mentioned starter kits at this time. However, you may use the ActiveX controls from a .NET program instead; as long as the controls are accessed from a 32-bit process.

On 32-bit Windows systems, if the computer has a parallel port that can be configured in a mode that can run the latest WinDaq/Lite software, the .NET API can be used with Dataq 32-bit ActiveX controls to control the DI-5001 via DataqSdk.ocx or eavesdrop on the WinDaq data stream via WinDaq.ocx. It can also call native 32-bit functions in 32-bit DI501NT.DLL as documented on www.dataq.com/sdk.

Dataq has no parallel port software to support the DI-5001 on 64-bit systems, but the DI-720-USB or DI-720-EN can provide similar functionality, excluding streaming playback through the DAC.

Hi, thanks for the info, just to clear up some information, the DI-5001 that we have is a usb version of the board, does that make a difference???


Thank you,

It does not make a difference (other than using the proper strings to connect to the device). You may still use the ActiveX controls (either dataqsdk.ocx or windaq.ocx as mentioned) from your 32-bit .NET application, but you can not use the new .NET SDK API.
