LabVIEW: General Information

License Information
This software may be used solely for academic research, teaching, and educational purposes at Duke University.
The software may be installed on an unlimited number of Duke-owned, Duke-leased, or faculty/staff-owned computers on Duke University campus in Durham, NC.  The license does not extend to campus locations outside of Durham, NC.  The license also allows home use by faculty and staff for academic instructional purposes or research purposes, and may be used on portable computers while temporarily away from Duke.  
The NI Academic Site License for large research institutions is purchased annually by the OIT and is distributed to the Duke community at no cost.

Support Information

Included with Duke’s site license is the SSP, or Standard Service program.  With this, you can contact engineers, get software updates, and on-demand training.

To gain access to technical support, you’ll have to register with National Instruments.  First, create an account, then register your products by entering the Duke Serial Number under My Products.
