I never made it past trivialities, such as reading some values and
doing some calulations. Shortly after, they released LabWindows,
based on a C Compiler with all the libraries necessary to interface
to the various instruments. Thous I didn't try it, that's what I'd
recommend instaed of LabView.
LabView was designed for scientists not able to do some programming.
Here, programming experience is required. Be it with whatever.
