ScanImage is written primarily in Matlab and uses National Instruments data acquisition (DAQ) hardware for its core functionality.
The Microsoft Windows operating system, Matlab software, and National Instruments DAQ driver software must be installed prior to using ScanImage.

NO MATLAB TOOLBOXES are required for any currently supported ScanImage version
Multiple Matlab versions can be simultaneously installed, and run, on the same machine/account, without counting as an extra license activation
If using Win7/64-bit and/or using the newer X Series devices from National Instruments, then DAQmx 9.3 or later must be used.
DAQmx version 8.8 compatibility is provided to facilitate upgrading from SI 3.6 or 3.7, which also can run on DAQmx 8.8. With this driver, users can install and switch between ScanImage versions, as desired, during the migration/upgrade.
