Issue Details

I would like to install and develop on both LabVIEW and LabVIEW NXG on the same computer, is this possible? Or will this cause any conflict?


Yes, you can have LabVIEW and later with LabVIEW NXG on the same computer, just as you can install different versions and bitness of LabVIEW.

However, you need to make sure the system requirements for both are met. To determine system requirements, view the readme for your version of LabVIEW and/or LabVIEW NXG software.

Additional Information

Note: The final release of LabVIEW NXG was LabVIEW NXG 5.1 in 2021. LabVIEW NXG is not recommended for new projects. For more information about the change in the LabVIEW NXG life cycle, refer to the announcement in the LabVIEW Forum.
