NOTE: The information on this page only pertains to LabVIEW 2015 64-bit and earlier. The VI Analyzer Toolkit is fully supported (including installers) for 64-bit LabVIEW on Windows, Mac, and Linux, with LabVIEW 2016 64-bit and later.
The VI Analyzer Toolkit installer for LabVIEW 2015 and previous only works with a 32-bit LabVIEW installation. The following steps (valid for LabVIEW 2009 through LabVIEW 2015) allow you to manually install the VI Analyzer Toolkit to 64-bit LabVIEW. These steps assume you have a valid license for LabVIEW 32-bit, LabVIEW 64-bit, and the VI Analyzer Toolkit.
Note - This procedure has not been formally tested by National Instruments, and thus is not officially supported. If you have any issues following these steps, please post them in the comments thread on this document, and not on the NI support forums.
Ensure LabVIEW 32-bit and LabVIEW 64-bit are already installed. They must be the same version.
Ensure the VI Analyzer Toolkit (same version) is installed to LabVIEW 32-bit.
Ensure you have properly activated your VI Analyzer Toolkit license.
Copy the following files and folders from your LabVIEW 32-bit folder to your LabVIEW 64-bit folder:
examples\VIAnalyzer (the folder is examples\VI Analyzer Toolkit in LabVIEW 2014 and 2015)
resource\Framework\Providers\GProviders\VI_Analyzer_Toolkit.ini (only present in LabVIEW 2011 through LabVIEW 2015)
Mass compile the following folders in LabVIEW 64-bit:
Once you have followed these steps, you should be able to use the VI Analyzer Toolkit in LabVIEW 64-bit. If, however, you encounter a licensing error when opening VI Analyzer VIs in 64-bit LabVIEW, you may need to follow these additional steps:
Fixing Licensing Issue with VI Analyzer Toolkit and 64-bit LabVIEW
Since these steps involve modifying the Windows registry, ensure your system is backed up appropriately.
Download the attached vian_64bit.zip file. Make sure to extract the contents to a folder on disk. Running the registry files from within the zip file may not work correctly.
If your 64-bit LabVIEW is installed in the default location (C:\Program Files\National Instruments), skip to step 5.
If your 64-bit LabVIEW is installed in a non-default location, use a program like Notepad to modify the .reg file that matches your LabVIEW version to correct the two "InstallDir" entries in the .reg file to point to your custom LabVIEW install location. Note that double backslashes are used for path separators. Save your edits to the .reg file.
Double-click on the .reg file that matches your LabVIEW version to update your registry. This should solve the licensing errors when opening VI Analyzer VIs in 64-bit LabVIEW.
