The final release of LabVIEW NXG was LabVIEW NXG 5.1 in 2021.

NI will not release new versions of LabVIEW NXG after LabVIEW NXG 5.1.


For more information about the change in the LabVIEW NXG life cycle, refer to the announcement in the LabVIEW Forum.

Those with existing LabVIEW NXG systems can continue to maintain them using LabVIEW NXG 5.1 and supported drivers. If you are beginning a new application, NI recommends using LabVIEW or the right configuration-based software for the project. The final hardware driver versions including support for LabVIEW NXG 5.1 are those released in 2021.


There will be no support for LabVIEW NXG in driver versions shipping in 2022. The LabVIEW NXG download will be hosted on for the foreseeable future. Consistent with the NI Software Life Cycle Policy, products in the Extended Support window and beyond no longer have access to paid technical support programs. NI ended support for LabVIEW NXG on July 15, 2022.
