NI myDAQ won't work with VirtualBox

Reported by: unixgeek Owned by:
Priority: major Component: USB
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.2 Keywords: myDAQ
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X


My school requires me to use a National Instruments myDAQ for a circuits class. Unfortunately, Windows is required. I'm a long time VirtualBox user running a Win 7 guest, but I'm completely unable to get the myDAQ driver to install successfully. NI says it works with VMWare Fusion, Parallels, and Boot Camp. I'd prefer to not a) carve up my mac's disk b) pay for VMWare or Parallels (broke student) I've downloaded the latest versions of everything and installed the extension pack.

What steps can I take to help with this?
