Provide an option to display a QR (2-D) code in the product activation dialog. The QR code should contain a web address that would return the activation codes for all selected products. For those of us stuck out in a lab or factory with only our smart phones this would provide a slick, foolproof way to enter all of the data needed. It would save us from either making a round trip back to civilization (with a pad full of info) or getting carpal-tunnel trying to type all that stuff in on a little soft keyboard (multiple times for multiple activations = hand cramp). We would still have to type the resulting activation codes into the LabVIEW activation screen but that's a lot easier than all the rest.
1) Provide a http link as a QR code
2) Have the target web page auto-generate the activation codes and display them (preferably in a mobile browser friendly format)
3) As an alternative, let the user upload a picture with the QR code to the NI activation web site for the same result (works for anyone with a camera not just smartphone users -- this would also let you show off IMAQ.)
