Announcing the VIPM 2022 for Mac and Linux Public Beta

Recommended Posts

Note: VIPM 2022 for Windows is available here: vipm.io/desktop

What's New in VIPM 2022 for MacOS and Linux

  • VIPM is now built as a 64-bit application, which greatly simplifies installation on 64-bit Linux and improves compatibility with newer versions of MacOS that dropped support for 32-bit apps. 
  • LabVIEW 2022 (and earlier) support on MacOS and Linux, which the community has been increasingly requesting.

Download VIPM 2022 beta for Mac and Linux


  • LabVIEW 2019 Runtime Engine (RTE) - Note: If you have LV2019 or greater installed, then you probably already have the LV2019 RTE
  • 64-bit Operating System

Installation (Mac)

  • Unzip download and copy "VI Package Manager.app" to your Applications folder

Installation (Linux)

  • Unzip contents of the download into the /user/local/JKI/VIPM/ folder
  • Ensure that the user account that will run VIPM has write permissions to the following folders:
    • /etc/JKI (you may need to create this first as sudo and then give write permissions)
    • /user/local/JKI/
    • /user/local/JKI/VIPM/
  • For installing packages with VIPM, you will need write permissions to various folders under the LabVIEW installation folder, such as:
    • /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-2020-64/
    • /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-2021-64/


VIPM's error logs may be found here (in the "error" folder inside the folder where you are running VIPM):
