This section provides detailed information about the Measurement Studio Core tools that you can use to quickly and easily build measurement and automation applications in Visual Studio. Measurement Studio Core includes all features and functionality available with installation of Measurement Studio .NET class libraries from the Measurement Studio installation media. Measurement Studio Core does not include .NET class libraries that support NI hardware. For more information about Core libraries, refer to Using Core .NET Libraries.

Note: The Measurement Studio tools that integrate into the Visual Studio environment, such as project wizards, the DAQ Assistant, and the Parameter Assistant, report unexpected errors to the system event log. If you see unexpected behavior using these Measurement Studio tools, use the Event Viewer application to look at the system log to determine whether Measurement Studio detected unexpected errors. To view the system event log, open the Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools and Event Viewer to launch the Event Viewer application. In the Event Viewer application, select the Application log. Click Source in the event log viewer and look for Measurement Studio in the Source field.
