Issue Details

I cannot find any installers that will install a 64-bit version of the LabVIEW FPGA Module or the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, only those for 32-bit version of LabVIEW. Where can I download 64-bit versions of those? 

Solution

Currently, there is no 64-bit version of the LabVIEW Real-Time Module. To use Real-Time you must have a 32-bit version of LabVIEW installed on your machine.

Up to version 2017, there was no 64-bit version of the LabVIEW FPGA Module. To use a pre-2018-version of the FPGA module, you need to have a 32-bit version of LabVIEW installed. In 2018, a 64-bit version of the LabVIEW FPGA Module was released. Note that the 64-bit version of the module only supports a subset of the hardware supported in the 32-bit version of the module. Refer to the LabVIEW 2018 FPGA Module Readme for a list of supported hardware in the 64-bit version of the module.

Additional Information

  • LabVIEW 32-bit can be installed in parallel to a LabVIEW 64-bit version.
  • You can use the same activation key for both the 64 and 32-bit version.
  • You can install LabVIEW 32-bit on your 64-bit operating system.
  • The order of installation of the modules and necessary drivers is important. Find more information in this article: Install NI Software for Your CompactRIO System
