Use the Addons category to access LabVIEW add-ons and to locate palettes of some modules or toolkits that you have installed in LabVIEW.

After you install a module or toolkit in LabVIEW, a palette that represents that module or toolkit appears in a relevant category on the Functions palette. For example, the Database Connectivity Toolkit palette appears in the Connectivity category.

Some module and toolkit palettes also appear in the Addons category. To view a palette in the Addons category, browse the Addons category on the Functions palette.

You can determine whether a module or toolkit subpalette has multiple owning palettes by searching for the module or toolkit on the Functions palette. If the search produces multiple results, the subpalette has more than one location. The names of the owning palettes appear in brackets to the right of the subpalette name.

Note  (Windows) You can choose whether to activate the license of the module or toolkit during installation. If you choose not to activate the module or toolkit license, an evaluation period begins when you launch LabVIEW, which allows you to evaluate the software for free for a set period of time. If you do not activate the license before the evaluation period expires, the module or toolkit palette disappears from the palettes, and you can no longer use the module or toolkit.

Click Find LabVIEW Add-ons in the Addons category to access LabVIEW add-ons and other code distributed on the LabVIEW Tools Network at If the JKI VI Package Manager (VIPM) software is installed, LabVIEW launches it. If the VIPM software is not installed, LabVIEW launches the LabVIEW Tools Network.
