I downloaded LabVIEW from ni.com and installed it. Here's the process:
1) Download a small downloader using my web browser. 2) Run the downloader, which then downloads a self-extracter 3) Run the self-extracter, which extracts the installer 4) Run the installer
I'm thinking that this process can be improved a little.
Out of principle, unconditional Kudos for delivering a product in fewer steps to the consumer. In practice, Kudos conditionally upon the acceptance of a license with widespread appeal (that's the only scenario where I - and I'm guessing quite a few others - would download LV rather than using the Dev Suite DVD's).
I don't keep a box full of CDs and DVDs from NI for nothing....
Never used the web install.
Since I'm behind a proxy and there is no option to configure address, port, user name and password I was not able to download at all!
The 2010 beta download is a simple good old fashioned FTP server. Works like a charm!
