Issue reported when a Volume License Agreement (VLA) is used for licensing.

Issue Details

I launched the Developer Suite installer but I cannot find all the products I need to install, for example, I cannot find the option to enable LabVIEW Real-Time module installation: 

I also need to install LabVIEW Real-Time module and I know that its license is included in my company Volume License Agreement (VLA).
Why doesn't the module appear in Developer Suite installation?
Where can I download the LabVIEW Real-Time module?


Developer Suite media (DVDs, USB keys or downloads) include all main National Instruments software products, including LabVIEW Real-Time module.
If LabVIEW Real-Time (or any other software package) does not appear in the list of products to install, the installer that you launched is actually a Volume License Installer that has been built and distributed by the VLA administrator. A Volume License Installer can distribute either all the software products included in a Developer Suite or a subset of products only.
If you need to install other modules or software, you can contact your VLA administrator.
You can also find last versions of NI software available for download from Downloads page.
For older versions of software, you can also contact National Instruments Technical Support.

Additional Information

National Instruments has introduced new NI software suites (replacing Developer Suites) to improve your experience with combinations of NI software.
You can find information on migration in Developer Suite Migration Guide. You can find the list of software included in each NI Software Suite in Compare NI Software Suites.
