National Instruments uses the JKI VI Package Manager Free Edition (VIPM) software to provide access to LabVIEW add-ons and other code distributed as JKI VI Package files. The VIPM software allows you to find, install, and manage LabVIEW add-ons distributed on the LabVIEW Tools Network.
The JKI VIPM software supports installing and managing add-ons distributed as VI Package (.vip) files. VI Packages are similar to zip files in that they contain all the VIs and resources for a specific LabVIEW add-on, as well as information the VIPM software uses to install, remove, and manage the add-on.
To launch the VIPM software if it is installed or to install the VIPM software if it is not installed, click the Find LabVIEW Add-ons link on the Find Drivers and Add-ons pane of the Getting Started window.
Refer to the JKI website for more information about the VIPM software. Refer to the VIPM software documentation for information about using the VIPM software to find, install, and manage add-ons.
