The NI Vision Development Module 2016 supports LabVIEW 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016; Visual Studio 2005 and 2008; and LabWindows™/CVI™ 2010 or later. The installer specifically allows side-by-side installations of NI Vision for each of the supported versions of LabVIEW, enabling you to use the NI Vision Development Module with multiple versions of LabVIEW. National Instruments recommends that you install LabVIEW, LabVIEW Real-Time, or any other supported development environment, before installing the NI Vision Development Module.
