The LabVIEW software is available for download here: https://www.labviewmakerhub.com/doku.php?id=libraries:labview:start. After clicking the link, click the Download Now button. You will be directed to another site to download the software. During the installation process, you will be prompted to enter the serial number that you received in the email from us. Once the install  and activation process is complete, you will be ready to use the software.


If you've already downloaded the evaluation version of LabVIEW and had the demo version run out, you can activate LabVIEW Home with the serial number received in the email from us. This serial can be used to activate the software online or it can be used to generate the 20 digit activation code manually.  If the computer you're using is connected to the internet you can activate by performing the following steps:


  • Launch NI License Manager from the Windows start menu.  
  • In the left column find LabVIEW Home Edition.  Right click it and choose activate.
  • Choose automatically activate through a secure internet connection.
  • Enter your 9 digit serial number and complete the activation process.
  • Repeat the steps for Applications Builder (under Modules) and any of the other LabVIEW Home Edition Modules you've installed (listed below).
Let us know if you have any trouble activating the software and we can manually generate activation codes for you.
As a side note, LabVIEW Home Edition includes:
  • LabVIEW Full Development System
  • LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module
  • LabVIEW MathScript RT Module
  • LabVIEW Application Builder
LabVIEW Application builder enables you to build executables from your LabVIEW VIs that can run without the full development environment (they still require the LabVIEW runtime).  It also enabled you to deploy LabVIEW VIs to BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi 2/3 using LINX.
If you’re new to LabVIEW, you can get started quickly with the LabVIEW MakerHub’s LabVIEW Basics video tutorials (https://www.labviewmakerhub.com/doku.php?id=learn:tutorials:labview:basics). If you have any questions about your LabVIEW project feel free to join us in the LabVIEWMakerHub forums: https://www.labviewmakerhub.com/forums/.
