Issue Details

I installed my LabVIEW environment in e.g. German and now would like to change to e.g. English. How is this possible?


Unfortunately this is not possible. To change the language you have to uninstall your current version and then install LabVIEW in your preferred language again.

Additional Information

In LabVIEW NXG it is possible to change the language directly in the settings tab.
Go to File>Preferences and scroll down in the Editor tab to the Language setting and change it to the preferred language.
