Add LabVIEW installers to chocolatey

Status: New


The package manager for Windows (like apt-get but for Windows).


Chocolatey it's a command line tool to download and install software with focus in automation and unattended..


something like:


choco install labview


and after a few coffees, voila. All installed.


it also supports local files, e.g.


choco install labview --source d:\


in case you have the "package" in the d drive.



Installing NI drivers should be something like:


 choco install NIDrivers               //full installation



choco install NIDrivers.NIDCPower            // Only NIDCPower 


Toolkits could be handle in the same way.


Chocolatey also handles dependencies. So requiring LV before installing any toolkit should be straight forward.
