LabVIEW Virtual Instrument Downloads for LabQuest® Interfaces

We have created an installer of LabVIEW files for our LabQuest 2, LabQuest Stream, LabQuest Mini, and Original LabQuest devices.

Requirements and Notes

Windows

  • The Windows installer supports the 32-bit version of LabVIEW 2009 through 2015 (running on either 32-bit or 64-bit computers).
  • The Windows installer determines what versions of LabVIEW are on the computer and automatically installs the files to those versions.
  • If you have Logger Pro software installed on your Windows computer, it must be version 3.11 or newer.
  • The Window installer also includes the LabVIEW files for the Vernier SensorDAQ and Go! Devices.
  • Support of the LabQuest Stream is via a USB connection, not bluetooth.

Mac

  • The Mac installer supports the 32-bit version of LabVIEW 2009 through 2013 and the 64-bit version of LabVIEW 2014 and 2015.
  • The Mac installer requires the user to click on the Customize button during installation to choose what versions of LabVIEW are on the computer. If Customize is not selected the installer will install the LabVIEW 2015 files.
  • The Mac installer also includes the LabVIEW files for the Go! Devices.
  • Support of the LabQuest Stream is via a USB connection, not bluetooth.
