Trying to install FRC software on my windows 7 - wrong activation code?

Greetings,

    I'm trying to assist my son who is part of First through his school.    I am a Java Developer by trade and while I have the Java development setup and working in Netbeans for FRC programs on my linux box I was hoping to at least be able to enable/disable the robot  (In this case we only have the electrical board and camera as the robot itself is bagged).   I've read enough of the threads to know that trying to get the driverstation on linux is more trouble than it's worth right now, however I do have a Windows 7 64bit vm.   I have tried to install from the dvd's we got at the start of the competition.     I can install the utilities disk just fine.   However when I try to run the labview install it refuses to run until I point it at a license or give it a correct activation code.     The machine id's presented (disk or ethernet) do not match the id generated for my system when during the utilities disk install it got me an activation code.   The activation code doesn't work that was emailed to me and at this point I'm at a loss for how to get the software to even let me install it.

A step by step pointer would help - I used the serial number on the disk sleeve when I installed it.

After hitting Next :

I accept the license agreement and then hit Next again

Choose Installation Directory  - leave it at default

Now we get to where I may have something wrong maybe.

- I've been choosing Temporary activation since I have no idea where to get the activation file.

That is the wrong disk. You want the National Instruments DVD, not the Windriver DVD. See http://wpilib.screenstepslive.com/s/3120/m/8559/l/89700-installing-the-2013-frc-driver-station-for-s... for instructions.
