Issue Details

I found a link for a 6-month evaluation of LabVIEW Student Edition, but when I downloaded it on my Mac computer, the software was only valid for a month.  Is it possible to extend this?


No, the evaluation period on Mac OS is limited to 30 days. The 6-Month trial of LabVIEW Student Edition is only available on a Windows system.

To activate the 6-Month Student trial on a Mac system:
  • Dual-boot with a Windows OS, using tools such as Apple's Boot Camp Assistant.
  • Install a virtual machine with a Windows OS on your system.
