License Management and NI Software Products

Last Modified: April 23, 2020

License management is the process of controlling access to software based on an explicit license agreement. Certain NI software products and third-party executables require an activated license in order to execute.

You must acquire and activate a license before you can use a product in full-featured mode.

License activation uses the following information to activate your product:
  • Your NI User Account
  • The product you are activating
  • The version of the product
  • The serial number of the product
  • A Computer ID that uniquely identifies your computer

NI uses this information to generate an activation code. This code is used to activate the product on your system and to turn on service entitlements such as the NI Software Service Program.

You can obtain an activation code from NI in several ways, including automatically through an Internet connection, using a web browser, or telephone. Online activation is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
