Issue Details

  • The word myRIO started appearing on my LabVIEW's splash screen and "About LabVIEW..." window. Why is this happening and how do I change it?
  • I installed the LabVIEW myRIO Toolkit on a system that already had a LabVIEW installation. Now when I start LabVIEW it displays as LabVIEW myRIO. Is it just a name change?


This indicates that you have the myRIO toolkit installed for your version of LabVIEW, and the LabVIEW for myRIO environment selected.

To return to the default LabVIEW environment:
  1. Select Tools on the LabVIEW top menu
  2. Select Choose Environment
  3. From here you can select your environment, and set the preferred one as Default
  4. Click Apply
At this point the loading splash screen and the About LabVIEW window will return to the default images.

Additional Information

The myRIO Toolkit provides the LabVIEW for myRIO environment to allow you to easily access myRIO-specific features and focus on developing myRIO applications
