Note to Students:
National Instruments does not recommend using the Mac OS X version of LabVIEW to communicate to NI hardware. To properly access the hardware drivers, NI recommends using Boot Camp to natively run Microsoft Windows on a machine running Mac OS X and using the Windows version of LabVIEW.
To install LabVIEW for Mac OS or Linux®, you must obtain a copy of the software to install it. LabVIEW for Mac OS X and LabVIEW for Linux® are shipped in activated states and thus are not posted for download at ni.com. To obtain a copy of LabVIEW for Mac OS X, you must purchase it through one of NI’s distributors such as Studica. Alternatively, if your school has purchased the Student Install Option with an Academic Site License you can obtain the Mac OS software from your license administrator. The Student Install Option through the purchase of an Academic Site License is the only option for student use of NI LabVIEW for Linux®.
