Hi Hyderiqbal,

Why don't you read your specific license agreement? It will tell you the amount of allowed installations...

 

(You will not get a lot of legal recommendations in a public forum! Software license usage is a legal problem, not a LabVIEW-programming related problem.)

Best regards,
GerdW

GerdW is correct.  Here is a link to the KnowledgeBase article which gives you some general guidelines about the usage rules but note that it tells you to contact NI for specifics about your particular situation.

First call NI an ask to be sure but... Historically you were allowed two installations of the development system. One at work and one at home. 

 

If you need to debug a program "onsite" you can install the development system in evaluation mode for temporary use.

 

Once you compile a program into an executable. You can install that EXE and the LabVIEW runtime libraries on as many computer as you want. You can even sell your EXE as the source code you write and EXE's you build are your (company's) intellectual property.

Historically, it was 3 installations: desk, lab, home.  But I will also admit that it has been near a decade since I looked at the Ts&Cs to verify this.  And with NI going to the subscription model as of 2 weeks ago, I'm not sure anymore.
