Subject: Final release for macOS support for NI Software
Dear NI Customer
According to our records, you have purchased or renewed a license for LabVIEW on macOS. We are writing to inform you that the latest version of this software, LabVIEW 2023 Q3 on macOS, has just recently been released and is now available from NI.com. This version has support for all current Apple-silicon-based chipsets, and the most recent release of macOS. We hope you find the product provides everything you need to create a first-class test system.
In addition, we are informing you that this will be the final release of LabVIEW on macOS. Starting with releases in 2024, LabVIEW will continue to be available on Windows and Linux OSes. We understand that this change of availability likely impacts your active and future plans. We have the following alternatives available for you to consider.
The VIs from the macOS LabVIEW version will port easily to LabVIEW on Windows and Linux, often without changes. In addition, the LabVIEW for macOS that you purchased includes the right to download and use LabVIEW on Windows and LabVIEW on Linux as well, so you don’t need to buy any additional software to do these migrations.
If you are unable or do not wish to, move your development to Windows or Linux computers, you can continue using the LabVIEW 2023 Q3 for macOS development system indefinitely. LabVIEW 2023 Q3 on macOS has no licensing restrictions that will prevent it from launching beyond any future date so you may continue developing test systems in LabVIEW on macOS indefinitely. New licenses will not be able to be purchased after March 1, 2024, and NI will stop providing mainstream support for it beyond this date. At your request, beyond March 1, 2024, if your product had originally been purchased as a subscription, NI will convert it into a perpetual license for your continued use.
If you have questions about these alternatives, please send an email to NI at email@example.com.
