LabVIEW and Microsoft Windows Server Compatibility


Each version of LabVIEW is compatible with several versions of the Microsoft Windows® desktop operating system. However, sometimes it may be desirable to run LabVIEW in a Microsoft Windows Server® operating system instead. This article provides compatibility information for that scenario.


If you are looking for information on Windows operating system compatibility, see the LabVIEW and Microsoft Windows Compatibility document.

Support for Windows Server with LabVIEW is listed in the table below. Prior to LabVIEW 2010, there was no support for any version of Windows Server. For older software versions, please see the file attached under Downloads.
