We have an EMG system that includes a National Instruments A/D board (a
PC-516). It can only handle 8-channels of single ended input and we were
wondering if we could write our own program in Visual Basic to use the card
for other purposes. The company's website seems to discourage using
anything but LabVIEW but we really can't justify spending a lot of money on
software for this card considering we already purchased the EMG
software/hardware system: if we decided to go down this route, we would
likely get a 16-channel card plus software, etc.

Does anyone have any experience writing Visual Basic code for NI boards and
the PC-516 in particular?

If I receive any helpful responses, I shall post a summary later.

Thank you.
