LabVIEW 64-bit is Here!

Active Participant

In case you hadn't heard, LabVIEW 2009 and the LabVIEW 2009 Vision Module is available for 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7, and a large number of NI Drivers already offer native support for 64-bit operating systems.

Because vision applications tend to work with some of the largest datasets, we focused on extending support to the Vision Module first.  However, we're very eager to hear from you regarding what you need next and why, so please let us know.  In the meantime, keep in mind that you can still run 32-bit versions of our software on a 64-bit version of Windows thanks to Windows-On-Windows (WOW).  It's a completely transparent emulation layer that makes applications think they're running on a 32-bit system.  Don't worry, you don't have to do anything different, but this means LabVIEW 2009 (64-bit) and LabVIEW 2009 (32-bit) can be installed side-by-side.
