How to Install OpenG Libraries

Issue Details

I want to install and download the OpenG libraries, but I can't find them on NI Package Manager. What can I do ?


  1. First download and install VI Package Manager.
  2. Next, you must tell VIPM about your LabVIEW versions, so that it can install the OpenG libraries onto your LabVIEW versions. See the getting started documentation for instructions for this.
  3. Check the network for packages -- this will let VIPM know which packages are available. This is also detailed in the getting started documentation. 
  4. Install packages on your LabVIEW versions
    • Make sure that the ogrsc_dynamicpalette package is installed. This is necessary, in order to see the "OpenG" category in your functions palette
  5. Restart your PC and you will now see the OpenG libraries in your pallet.


Additional Information

  • NI Package Manager does not intend to replace the VI Package Manager.
  • It seems that sometimes, the installation of LabVIEW 2017 SP1 can uninstall the VI Package Manager. Please see in the related links for more informations about this.
