I am a new user of Scilab, and I would like to use the NIDAQ toolbox.
Where can I find a good explanation on how to install the NIDAQ toolbox?
using atomsInstall('NIDAQ') and other options that I found in the internet results in 
Error 10000.
Comment from Benoit Viallet -- May 18, 2017, 06:00:30 PM    

I installed the toolbox under Win7 64bit and Scilab 6. I get
the following message
when starting the toolbox:

	Load macros
atomsLoad : Une erreur est survenue au cours du chargement de 'NIDAQ-0.3.2':
	lib : D:\Users\XXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Scilab\scilab-6.0.0\atoms\x64\NIDAQ\0.3.2\macros\
n'est pas un chemin de librairie valide.

But the path is correct. 

Loading with this method and similar path is OK with scilab 5.5 and loading with scilab
6.0 other toolbox is correct also.

Any advice?

Thanks Benoit
