Accessing LABView

LabVIEW is available on UQ computers for all UQ staff and HDR students on campuses in Queensland.

If you are a staff member or an HDR student with a staff account, you can download the LabVIEW installer for UQ computers from the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology student software section.

If you are not part of one of these groups but are still eligible to use LabVIEW, contact your local IT support or submit an IT request to get LabVIEW.

Home use

Setting up your personal computer

  1. Install LabVIEW on your personal computer.
  2. Find your computer ID by going to 'Start' > 'Programs' > 'National Instruments' > 'NI Licence Manager', then go into 'Options' > 'Display Computer Information' to get the ID number.
  3. Email your computer ID and name to to ask for a Detached Licence.

Alternatively, you can use VPN to connect to the Licence Server and complete your installation.

Conditions of use

LabVIEW is available to all current UQ employees and HDR students who have valid UQ login credentials and who are based in Queensland.

The UQ site licence allows all academics, students and researchers to use LabVIEW for teaching or non-commercial research but not for commercial applications.

LabVIEW used to be funded by the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology and the Faculty of Science. The funding is being reviewed to include new areas that use the software. The licence is renewed annually on 29 September.
