Download NI Software to Host On Your Own Feed

Starting in May 2019, the vast majority of NI product installers will contain packages.  You can follow the following steps for NI product installers that contain packages.


NI Package Manager

  1. Download the offline installer for the NI software (e.g. LabVIEW Run-Time Engine, NI-DAQmx, etc) you want to host on your own feed as packages.
    • Go to
    • Find the download page for your NI software.  Click the "offline installer" link, and then download the offline installer.  Below is an example for the LabVIEW 2019 Runtime Engine.

  5. Copy the packages (.nipkg) from the "pool" subfolder to wherever you want to store those packages for your own feed.  Then add those packages to your own feed (or create a new feed with those packages).  For specific steps, refer to the Distribute Packages Using NI Package Manager document.



If you are using SystemLink, you can go to the Package Repository, click on a feed, click the Add Packages button, select Import Packages from Downloads, and choose the NI software you want to import.
