Getting started with Arduino. This page basically discusses the process of installation and usage of Arduino through LabView V9. I used Ardunio mega 2560 with Labview V9 and windows 7, but the process would be similar to all Arduino boards and Labview version. First thing first connect the Arduino to the computer, window is going to look for the driver and fail but that is alright.

Driver installation

Use the link [1] to download the drivers to the computer. Now go the control panel->system and security-> system-> Device Manager->Port (COM & LPT)->Drivers->update Driver->Browse->find the folder of driver just downloaded->install. During the process Arduino will not show in ports but as soon as the drivers are installed successfully it will show as Arduino Mega 2560 (com#).
