    • Leave the Advantech drivers checked if you intend to use FACTORY I/O with Advantech USB 4750 and 4704 DAQ boards (requires the Ultimate Edition).

    • Leave the OPC Core Components option checked if you are going to use FACTORY I/O with the OPC Client Data Access driver (requires either the Ultimate or Modbus & OPC Client DA Edition).
