If you cannot find the Multisim Design VI in LabVIEW, it means that it was not installed. The Multisim installer will by-default enable the plug-in installer if it detects you have the proper versions of LabVIEW and the LabVIEW Control Design & Simulation module installed.
You can check which version of Multisim you have by launching the application and selecting Help » About Multisim
You can manually force the Multisim installer to install the plug-in for LabVIEW. To do this, launch the Multisim installer, and follow the prompts until you reach the Features
section (see Figure 1
) where you can select which features to install.
- Click the icon to the left of the NI LabVIEW-Multisim Co-simulation Plug-in 14.1 for LabVIEW entry, and select Install this feature to a local drive.
- You can then click Next.
Once you finish running the installer, the plug-in will now be installed in the LabVIEW directory, you may launch LabVIEW and find the Co-simulation plug-in located in the Functions Palette » Control Design & Simulation » Simulation » External Models » Multisim » Multisim Design VI
