Issue Details

I would like to download the LabWindows™/CVI™ 2019 Runtime version, but I can't find the download link. Where can I find it?


When accessing the LabWindows™/CVI™ Download  page, there are several options that can be changed in order to download the version of software you need for your project. The initial setup for our LabWindows™/CVI™ download can be seen in the image below. Take note of the option for Application Bitness and Included Editions

If you change the Application Bitness to the option "32-bit & 64-bit", you will be able to see that the Included Editions change to "Runtime". This can be seen in the image below.

After changing these settings, you should be able to download the Runtime version of the software. As a note, you can also download and install the LabWindows™/CVI™ 2019 Runtime version via NI Package Manager. You can check the Related Links section for more information on how to install software using NI Package Manager.

Additional Information

The LabWindows™/CVI™ 2019 Runtime version includes both 32 and 64-bit architectures. This allows the runtime to execute different applications, so there's no need to install two runtimes to be able to execute your programs.
