Issue Details

I have multiple versions of LabVIEW installed on my computer. When I uninstall a newer version of LabVIEW using the Package Manager, older versions also get removed. How can I uninstall only the newer version ?


This behavior of Package Manager is expected if you select LabVIEW Runtime along with the LabVIEW development system for removal. Selecting only the LabVIEW development system removes that specific version only.
