  • You must first install Graphical Analysis 4.
  • The Windows installer includes the LabVIEW files for the LabQuest interfaces, Go Direct sensors (GDX), SensorDAQ, and Go! devices.
  • Support of the LabQuest Stream is via a USB or Bluetooth connection for LabVIEW 2016 through 2018, and just USB for LabVIEW 2009—2015.

macOS

  • The macOS installer supports the 32-bit version of LabVIEW 2009 through 2013 and the 64-bit version of LabVIEW 2014 and 2015.
  • The macOS 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 macOS installer also includes the LabVIEW files for the Go! Devices.
  • Support of the LabQuest Stream is via a USB connection, not Bluetooth.
