Issue Details

I would like to install LabVIEW NXG on my machine but I can not (or would prefer not to) install NI Package Manager. Is this possible?


It is not possible to install LabVIEW NXG on a machine without the use of NI Package Manager. NI Package Manager is the Installer for NXG and is a required tool for installation. However it is possible to download NXG from the web without the use of NI Package Manager. This is useful for installing LabVIEW NXG to an off-network machine in the event that network-connected machines are not able to have software installed (such as NI Package Manager). 

Appropriate software can be downloaded from and downloading the "LabVIEW NXG X.X and Drivers" Application Software. Note that this is different from the "LabVIEW NXG X.X and Drivers Web Installer". The web installer will require NI Package Manager to download software and is smaller web download compared to the full Application and Drivers.
