DAPtools 6.0 data acquisition software supports native 64-bit applications for Windows 7 and is designed to provide an easy step-up to native 64-bit applications. Compatibility is maintained as much as possible between the 64-bit and 32-bit versions. The included support software provides native 64-bit versions of critical system service software. Primary among these is the DAPcell Server, software that coordinates devices, networks and the programming API, so that all data acquisition processor devices share a common device driver system. Two other critical elements are the DAPIO programming API and the MSLACOM control panel configuration utility. The DAPIO 64-bit application interface supports development using Microsoft Visual C++, Visual C# and Visual Basic .NET.
