LabView installation

Long story short: I had some troubles with my LabView version so had to delete it manually, deleting files from my computer. Now I can't install any oficial or pirate version. What do I do, I really need to use it, but I cant

The easiest option is to do a clean reinstall of the OS, it is not recommended to uninstall manually such complex software.

It's either 1. very bold or 2. very stupid to come onto the company's forum and ask why you can't install a pirated version of their software.  I don't know why a pirated version would install any differently than an official version, or why you would have a pirated copy when you also have an official copy.  The more I think about it, I'm leaning toward number 2.

Heads up! NI has moved LabVIEW to a mandatory SaaS subscription policy, along with a big price increase. Make your voice heard.

Oh, I didn't realize you mentioned "pirated", looks like you're a student. We don't encourage or support any sort of pirated activities.

 

Apart from that, to get the legal official version working, since you messed up your old version by manually deleting files, you need to start with a fresh system (OS).

As someone who has had a lot of experience installing and uninstalling LabVIEW, and who once (well, twice, but who's counting?) tried to "forcibly remove LabVIEW", I am pretty sure that you will need to do the following:

  1. Back up what can be backed up from your PC's C: drive.
  2. Gather Installation media for everything you have (or want) on your "new" PFormat the entire C: drive (which erases everything on it).
  3. Reinstall your licensed (I hope) copy of Windows.
  4. Reinstall all the other licensed application.
  5. Reinstall your Profiles and data.

Now you are in a position to install LabVIEW.  You will need a LabVIEW license.  LabVIEW installation can be challenging -- see if you can find an experienced LabVIEW user to help you.
