Issue Details

I want to obtain the Mac OS X and Linux LabVIEW software from the Academic Software License (ASL). How would we get access to those versions? 


The Mac and Linux software are included with the purchase of an Academic Site License. You may download the most recent versions of academic software or use physical media provided by your site administrator. 

Online downloads for academic software require an active NI User Account and a registered Student Install serial number. Contact your site software administrator for this serial number.


If you need a copy of physical media that contain the Mac and Linux® software or information about Student Install serial numbers, please contact
