I've just bought the student version of LabVIEW 8.5.1 and am using Mac OS X 10.4.11. What are the biggest differences between the Mac and Windows versions since the box came with a Mac installer CD and a Windows installer DVD?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Looks like you got the LabVIEW Student Edition Software Suite DVD.
It comes with 6 toolkits, and from the product spects, some (or all?) of those are windows only (at least in 8.5), e.g.:
Since you have 8.5, you are also missing a few basic things that only recevied MAC support in 8.6, such as Mathscript, Control design and Simulation, and Native 3D graphs.
Yes I do have the student version and Mathscript is the one thing I need. And it seems that LV8.6 will be intel-only on Mac - or at least Mathscript, so I'm out of luck there as well.
Guess I'll have to go out and buy a Windows computer from somewhere...
