 using labview to detect my DAQ device

i just installed a DAQCard-6024E which is connected to a BNC-2110 and
to a photo-sensor. i am trying to obtain readings using labview6.0. I
am a rookie at labview and need help

The first step is to get the card recognized by Measurement and
Automation. To do this open MAX (the DAQ installer should have left a
shortcut on your desktop) and in the explorer window on the left side
of the screen, open the sub tree for viewing devices. Your board
should appear in there. If it doesn't, press F5 and it should pop in.

Once MAX recognizes the device, you can create virtual channels that
read the inputs. LabVIEW, in turn, reads those channel names.

In terms of LV code, a good place to start is with either the examples
or the DAQ Wizard.

Obviously this is a quick overview, but the process isn't really very
hard. The documentation will give you the details of you are having
trouble with any of this.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to contact me.
