How do I install NI software onto an external hard drive so as to save space?


Some components of NI software can be installed onto the non-root disk.

However drivers must be installed on the Windows root drive (usually C) as this is a requirement of the operating system.

All other software such as LabVIEW, TestStand etc. can be installed on external hard drives (application software).
