NI-IMAQdx missing in the function palette

I thought I installed everything needed for camera control but I found that NI-IMAQdx subVIs were missing in the function pallet.


I reinstalled the Vision Acquisition Software (VAS) AND NI-IMAQdx drivers from the LabVIEW product package that I purchased (provided with a USB memory) but it did not work.

I downloaded the NI Vision Acquisition Software ( and installed it. Now, it looks fine.


Every time I newly install LabVIEW on a PC, I encounter this problem and am doing the same thing to fix it. I wonder why the installation of LabVIEW and VISION package is made so tricky.
