Is LabVIEW Supported on Microsoft Windows Tablet Editions?

I wish to use LabVIEW on my Tablet PC. Can I use LabVIEW with Microsoft Windows Tablet Editions?


Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Editions are essentially the same as conventional XP but with added support for touch screens. Theoretically, LabVIEW should function and run in the same fashion on Tablet Editions as the regular desktop version.

However, National Instruments does not offer support for LabVIEW running on Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Editions, nor have we tested LabVIEW on those editions. A valuable resource in the case that you encounter a problem on the Tablet Edition that you cannot reproduce on the normal desktop version is the NI Discussion Forums, where you can communicate directly with other end users who have experience with similar applications.

Note that with Windows Vista, the Tablet PC functionality no longer requires a separate edition. Tablet PC support is built into all editions of Windows Vista with the exception of Home Basic. This extends the handwriting recognition, ink collection, and additional input methods to any computer running Vista even if the input device is an external digitizer, a touch screen, or even a regular mouse.

LabVIEW is supported in Microsoft Windows Vista as of version 8.2.1 and later.
