LabVIEW 2021 Beta Now Available

do we have a "whats new in LV-2021?" document somewhere? (BTW the installer doesnt run on a 32bit win7 OS. After starting the installer I immediately get a message that this only runs on a 64bit win10 version 1507 or newer.)


I can't find the announcement, but IIRC, support for 32 bit OS's stopped.

 

IIRC, Windows 7 support was explicitly dropped as well.

 

Weirdly enough, LV 32 bit is still recommended over 64 bit...

In the meantime I did install LV Version 21.0b11 (64bit) onto a MacOS 11.3 M1 Mac. Things work quite well so far although not really much faster than on the previous Intel Macs. I do have problems to build stand alone applications from this LabVIEW though (Posted this in another thread)

 

Happy wireworks!

You can see the announcement here:

https://www.ni.com/en-us/support/documentation/supplemental/19/national-instruments-support-for-wind...

 

On May 1, 2021, NI software will drop support for Microsoft Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit), Windows 8.1 (32- and 64-bit), Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, and all 32-bit Windows operating systems. NI hardware and software released after May 1, 2021, will not install or execute correctly on those operating systems.

I added a "New Features" list to the original post in this thread.

I first saw this with the NIPM 20.7 announcement.

Installation fails on computers with certain chipsets. (Windows)

  • ni-webserver-webservices-amqp or skyline-rabbit-mq might fail on install.

There's an update on this Windows installation issue. A workaround is to install SystemLink 2021 R1 before installing LabVIEW 2021 Beta:

 

  1. Install the latest version of NIPM
  2. Click the gear icon in the upper right corner of NIPM to open the Settings view
  3. Check the "Show available packages and feed management tools" checkbox
  4. Select the Feeds tab
  5. Click the Add button to add a new feed
  6. Provide a name for the feed 'systemlink-server'
  7. Input the 2021 R1 SystemLink Server feed URI: https://download.ni.com/support/nipkg/products/ni-s/ni-systemlink-server/21.0/released
  8. Perform the installation of LV2021

Still the old interface, no vector graphics, no zoom, ... Seems to be a IDE from the nineties. Come on NI, you can do better!

At least try to recuperate some of the interface work you've done with NXG.

How long has NXG been "dead" now? How realistic is it to have a complete re-write of the user interface within this timeframe? 

I prefer to have a proper implementation, not a quick one.

 

BTW.... How many people have complained about the looks of NXG?
