Starting with NI-VISA version 4.2, the installation path is:

C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\VISA

All Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers use the NI-VISA installation path. Previously, the installation path

for the Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers in line with the NI-VISA installation was:


More recent Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers use the following path:

C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\VISA

If a new Rohde & Schwarz instrument driver is installed and the old path (C:\VXIPNP) is already being used,

the driver will be installed in C:\VXIPNP.

Starting with NI-VISA 4.2, the installation path is C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\VISA.

Upgrades for previous versions of NI-VISA use the old installation directory.
