I have downloaded LabView Community Edition 32 bit for Windows (.iso file) from here. :
An ISO.file was downloaded:
ni-labview-2021-community-x86_21.0.0_offline.iso 2,439,682 kB
After unrar I started installation on my NI PXI-1042 computer with Windows 7. The installer said, I need Windows 10 / 64 bit .... crazzy.😀
Why is that crazy? Microsoft themselves ended support for Windows 7 nearly two years ago.
You are running Community Edition on a PXI chassis? 🤔
Either you are Rich to afford a personal PXI Chassis for hobby or misread the rule that Community Editon cannot be used for commercial use.
Please do read the CE license terms to avoid any legal controversies -https://www.ni.com/en-us/support/documentation/supplemental/20/labview-community-edition-usage-detai...
I bought a PXI chassis with a damaged power supply for a very good price on eBay. I repaired the damaged power supply and the system has been working ever since.
I use it for hobby.
JimB, I still run more older systems than Windows 7. The Windows 7 is the :"newest" system I have. My oldest system is HP-Unix on HP 75000 system. Regardless end of support....
And my oldest computer is HP9825A still working and often in use regardless support... Just for fun and hobby.
Wow, fun! What's the controller module? At work we have several PXI-1042 chasses (is that the plural?) with PXI-8108's and they run Windows 10 64-bit just fine. If the current installation of Windows 7 is activated, you can do the upgrade for free.
