You can use the LabVIEW debug and deployment license to fix issues on an application or system that was previously created with one of the development licenses shown in the preceding table.
Starting with the LabVIEW 2022 Q3 release, the debug and deployment license activates your edition of LabVIEW, all LabVIEW Modules (LabVIEW FPGA and LabVIEW Real-Time), and all LabVIEW toolkits.
Debug and deployment licenses are sold as perpetual licenses that include a one-year Standard Service Program (SSP) agreement.
You can access previous versions of LabVIEW from the LabVIEW download page with your active LabVIEW subscription license or service agreement. Service packs and patches are also available from the download page.
