Use the Storage/DataPlugin VIs to read measurement data from a variety of file formats, write data to .tdm or .tdms files, or manage DataPlugins installed on the local computer. You must download appropriate DataPlugins and register them on the local computer before you can access the corresponding file formats. Refer to the National Instruments website at to download DataPlugins.

Note: If you build an installer for a stand-alone application or shared library that uses the Storage/DataPlugin VIs, you must include the NI USI installer. To include the NI USI installer, on the Additional Installers page of the Installer Properties dialog box, remove the checkmark from the Automatically select recommended installers checkbox and place a checkmark in the NI USI checkbox.
