LabView is licensed for both instructional and research activities by the College of Science and Engineering.
NI's Academic site license page has details on what software is included (note, we do not license MultiSIM).
The Windows (32-bit) installer for LabView can be downloaded from the MyPhys software downloads page.
Some installers were packaged as a .7z archive (you will need 7zip to unpack these). Most are ISO files.
Labview must connect to a network license server in order to operate. Your computer must be connected to the university network, so if you are operating off-campus, you will need to connect to the U's VPN in order for the license server communication to work.
