Last Modified: June 10, 2021

NI offers a variety of licenses for the different ways you can use VeriStand in development and deployment applications.

Licensing Options

Use the following descriptions to determine the VeriStand licensing option that fits your needs.


For more information on activating VeriStand licenses, refer to To purchase a VeriStand license, refer to For questions about specific licensing needs, contact an NI representative.

License Description
Evaluation Mode Software runs as a Full Development system for 7 days. The evaluation period can be extended to 45 days. You can activate a VeriStand license at any point during or after the evaluation period.
Full Development Enables full VeriStand functionality.
PC Development Enables you to run simulations on a desktop PC.
Operator Enables you to configure a project file by determining the preconfigured system definition file that runs on the target and defining the test environment that an operator interacts with.

Comparing License Option Features

The following table shows the features available with the Full Development, PC Development, and Operator licenses.

The table does not contain the Evaluation Package because it includes the same features as the Full Development license. You must install MathWorks Simulink® software to run uncompiled models.
