Versioning an IVI-COM Driver
Driver functionality must necessarily evolve over time, as new features are introduced into the associated instrument. Both the IVI Foundation and COM impose specific requirements on how new functionality is introduced in an IVI driver. These requirements are intended to preserve backwards compatibility and minimize the disruption to existing IVI-based application code.
The topics in this section explain the issues involved in versioning IVI drivers and the features provided by Nimbus to address those issues.
