Need assistance installing MindStorm NXT module on my desktop with Win XP and also my laptop which runs Win 7, software does not want to install?

I need assistance to install LabView MindStorm NXT module in a Desktop system with Win XP and a Laptop with Win7. Both are 32 bit with all service packs applied. I purchased the academic version from a company called On-The-Hub.

 

Attempted to install but seems to reject my serial number?

Hi, Sorry to hear you are having trouble. What version of LabVIEW are you using. Are you getting an error installing LabVIEW or the NXT module?

It appears to stop installing the NXT module when trying to confirm serial number?

 

Thanks

Last reply should have included that I have LabView 2010 and 2011 versions.

 

Thanks

Hi Rob,

Thats really strange because the NXT Module 2010 and the NXT Module 2011 are free and don't require serial numbers. Where did you obtain the installer? The core LabVIEW installer requires a serial number but if you already have that installed, the NXT Module is just a free addon. Here are the links to the module for LabVIEW 2010 & 2011

Oh one other thing, if you are trying to install it for 2010, you need to upgrade your version of LabVIEW to 2010SP1, which is also free if you have a licensed version of 2010. Maybe thats what the message is about?
