Why is LabVIEW install and uninstall extremely slow?

Unplug the network Cable. 🙂

Wish it was that easy.  Management software installed on the PC will still turn everything back on that I am able to turn off after 5 min.

Happily running LV2011 SP1. No need (at least for me) to upgrade 2x times a year. I remember all the problems, bugs, etc.

I am also on day #3. I first uninstalled an earlier version to free up some room, and that took hours. Drivers are the worst. FPGA not much faster.

This thread has been inactive for about three months, maybe try starting a new thread to get some more help and see if anyone from the community has seen this installation issue and has a workaround.

I've had no problem installing LabVIEW 2018 on several Windows 10 PCs, and have never had to disable anti-virus software to do a LabVIEW install.  As it happens, I work about 6 buildings over from Randy Pursley, so I just left him Voice Mail offering to at least "consult" on this issue.  Maybe together we can fix this, and report back on the "solution".
