Issue Details

I finished installing LabVIEW but I found it missing some features related to the VI Analyzer Toolkit, for example, the VI Analyzer VIs. Is this toolkit included with LabVIEW and is there any way of installing it if the features are not available after finishing the LabVIEW installation?

Solution

The VI Analyzer Toolkit is included with LabVIEW Professional Development System, if you installed LabVIEW and you are not able to find the VI Analyzer Toolkit, there are three main troubleshooting steps that you can try to activate/install the toolkit:

1. Activate
It may happen that the VI Analyzer Toolkit is already installed but not activated, please follow these steps to license the toolkit:
  1. Open the NI License Manager >> Local Licenses and verify if the toolkit is listed under Add-ons.
  2. If you see the toolkit on the list, you can activate it by inputting your serial number. For more information on how to activate your software, look at this article.

2. Install and Activate
The toolkit might not be installed for the LabVIEW version that you are using. In this case, please use the independent installation file for the toolkit and verify that it matches the LabVIEW bitness:

  2. Choose the right version of the software (32-bit or 64-bit).
  3. Download the software.
