Expand (or allow expansion of) NI software installer GUI

Status: New

The list of available LabVIEW modules and device drivers is very long. Their names tend to be long too, which is compounded by the many levels of nesting. Modern screens are large.


Given all that, why are we selecting software components by scrolling around a tiny window which can't be expanded?



(Note: most of the trees above aren't exen opened yet!)



Proposal: Make the window bigger (vertically and horizontally), or resizeable, or both.


Thanks for listening!

Isn't this a duplicate by now of the idea I linked to above?

I am not saying it is not a good thing to remind NI developers that there are users out there and that, last time I checked, they are developing products for clients, not the opposite, but there are already quite some confusion on this forum...

I guess it is. Should I copy all the screenshots over to the other post? The thing is, closing an idea as a duplicate means that any gems and kudos are effectively buried in the archive forever and won't be looked at by NI.

Claustrophobic windows syndrome.  I have it, and admitting it is the first step.  And while I agree this is starting to duplicate other ideas, I do like seeing the ever growing list of windows that need this resolved in one place.
