Wanted: Used LabVIEW for Mac License


Recommended Posts

Wanted:  Used Labview with app builder -  for Mac (I'm crossing over from Windows and  don't have the $3.6k to buy new version)

 

I've been told in another post that NI has to receive written notice of the transfer to allow me to register a used version.  

 

Thanks

Many people I know actually still run LabVIEW for Windows in parallels instead of transitioning. The main benefit being that most/possibly all tool kits don't support LabVIEW for Mac so you are limited to core functionality. This maybe fine for you but wanted to make you aware you maybe able to avoid this.

The flip side is I have never seen anything to say we officially support this configuration but I have seen many people using it successfully (including NI staff).

Actually many Toolkits work just fine under the Mac. It's mostly the installers that support only Windows. Installing the Toolkit on a Windows system and copying it over to a Mac works for many of them, as long as they are all VI based and don't contain external code in the form of DLLs.
