This article refers to the PersonalDaq/54, PersonalDaq/55 and PersonalDaq/56 using the general term PDaq

There are three installations that are needed to use the PDaq inside the DASYLab 12 & 13 software. The first one is obviously DASYLab however, you will also need the Personal DaqView software along with the DASYLab Support files. For these two installations, refer to the files attached to this article. The two files are installations and can be run with a simple double click of the mouse. Once you have installed all three pieces of software, plug the PDaq into the USB port and launch DASYLab. For XP users you will have to finish the device installation when the Add New Hardware Wizard pops up. With the hardware installed run DASYLab and the support will be located under the menus:

For DASYLab 2016 & 2020 users, in addition to the above procedure, copy the attached file called IOtechPDAQ5x. to the following folder:
