  • LabVIEW 2017 Full


Software: Trend Micro
OS: Windows 7

Issue Details

I am unable to install LabVIEW 2017 from USB drive while using Trend Micro Anti-Virus.  When plugging in the flash drive to a Windows 7 computer with Trend Micro antivirus software installed and active, a Device Control Violation error is given by Trend Micro.


Trend Micro has strict USB security settings and in order for LabVIEW 2017 to be installed via a USB those settings must be temporarily disabled.
Turn off the USB security settings in Trend Micro by following the following the Trend Micro guide.
