Subject: Re: LabVIEW Pricing? What to get?



We used to have a classroom pool license way back at the time LabVIEW was a
Macintosh only piece of software, but in the meantime as LabVIEW became
industry standard and extensively used in research labs and industry, our
university managed for a site license of the LabVIEW Professional
Development System with all whistle and bells and very many addon tools.
This site license is probably not such a cheap thing but for an entire
university campus with many users, it is probably a very good deal.

And yes I use the application builder a lot to create stand alone
executables which run independent of the LabVIEW development system. To
create an exe is easy, however the exes are not platform independent like
the LabVIEW VIs. You have to create them on a particular platform for that
platform, thus WindozeXYZ stuff must be build under Windoze, Macintosh apps
under Mac, Linux under Linux aso.

Hope this helps
