Quick Installation for PC boards

ADDI-DATA has developped a new driver generation: the ADDI-DATA Multiarchitecture Device Drivers 32-/64-bit for x86/AMD64.

These drivers are adequate for:

64-bit applications (up from Windows 7)
New 32-bit applications (up from Windows 7) that are to be ported to 64-bit in the future
ADDI-DATA Multiarchitecture Device Drivers

These drivers are not adequate for:

Existing 32-bit applications (Windows XP/7), that were installed with ADDIREG.
Please use our driver ADDI-DATA W32-Bit Driver for x86.
ADDI-DATA W32-Bit Driver for x86

.

Porting from 32-bit to 64-bit application

Case 1: no new compiling

You want to execute your existing 32-bit application under Windows 64-bit without any changes and thus without a compilation.

  • On the Windows 64-bit computer, uninstall all ADDI-DATA drivers (see Quick Installation, Chapter 1.2).

.

Notice!

The directories “C:\Windows” and “C:\Windows\System32” may no longer contain any ADDI-DATA files.

The further procedure depends on the fact if the board used supports ADDIPACK 64-Bit or not. An overview of the ADDIPACK boards and functions can be found in the manual for ADDIPACK 64-Bit, which is included in the “Manuals” folder after downloading ADDIPACK 64-Bit from our FTP server (see option b).

Notice!

Please note that with the compatible DLL, the synchronous interrupt mode is not available!

a) Boards without ADDIPACK 64-Bit
(APCIe-1500*, APCIe-/CPCIs-1711, APCI-/CPCI-1500*, APCI-/CPCI-1710, APCI-/CPCI-3001, APCI-/CPCI-3120)

  • Install the corresponding driver of the type “ADDI-DATA Multiarchitecture Device Drivers 32-/64-Bit for x86/AMD64”.

The compatible DLL (“APCIxxxx.dll”) is automatically copied into the directory “C:\Windows\SysWOW64”. Instead, it is also possible to copy the DLL into the directory of the application.

Notice!

With the APCI-3001, the compatible DLL (“APCI3001.dll”) must be copied from the driver directory “Driver_[operating system]\x86” (see Quick Installation Chapter 2) into the directory of the application and be renamed (“PCI3001.dll”).

* With this board, option b) or c) may be executed as well.

b) Boards with ADDIPACK 64-Bit
(Digital boards with ADDIPACK 64-Bit functions)

  • Install the corresponding driver of the type “ADDI-DATA Multiarchitecture Device Drivers 32-/64-Bit for x86/AMD64”.
  • To download ADDIPACK 64-Bit, on our FTP server (ftp://Drivers:addidrivers@addi-data.com), in the folder “ADDIPACK64_BIT/”, click on the .zip file. Save this file in a directory of your choice and unpack it afterwards.
  • To install ADDIPACK 64-Bit, in the “Program” folder, double-click on the “setup.exe” file.

ADDIPACK 64-Bit contains the compatible DLL (“ADDIDATA.dll”). In order to use this, you have to start the tool “Virtual Board Manager” (see manual for ADDIPACK 64-Bit in the “Manuals” folder).

c) Boards with the compatible DLL “ADDIDATA.dll”
(Digital boards without ADDIPACK 64-Bit functions, analog boards, combination of analog and digital boards)

  • Install the corresponding driver of the type “ADDI-DATA Multiarchitecture Device Drivers 32-/64-Bit for x86/AMD64”.
  • To download the compatible DLL, on our FTP server (ftp://Drivers:addidrivers@addi-data.com), in the directory
    “ADDI-DATA_DLL_Customer/[board name]”, click on the .zip file. Save this file in a directory of your choice and unpack it afterwards.
  • Copy the compatible DLL (“ADDIDATA.dll”) into the directory “C:\Windows\SysWOW64” or in the directory of the application.

.

Case 2: with compiling

You want to use your existing 32-bit application with Windows 64-bit with changes
