Activation Code

Activation Code

Where can you view your activation code for LabVIEW.
I already have it installed, licenced, activated, etc.

 

I just wanted to find my activation code.

I thought if you were in LabVIEW and pressed

Help >> About LabVIEW

it would show you, but I cannot find it.

Re: Activation Code

Unfortunately, the NI License Manager does not display this information. When you activated the product did you ask for an email confirmation? I believe the code is provided in that email.

Re: Activation Code

Yes, you can get the activation code only if you have requested for the confirmation mail during activation. If you didn't select the option and desperately need the activation code, right click on the product (in NI License Manager), deactivate the product and activate it again with requst for email confirmation enabled.

Re: Activation Code

Open the registry editor (start...run...regedit in Win XP) and look for:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\National Instruments\License Manager\Activation Codes

 

The key names are a little "short", but you should be able to figure out what they mean (e.g. LabVIEW_PDSM_PKG:8.0600 =LabVIEW professional 8.6)  Since LabVIEW has reigstry access tools, you could even write a small VI that lists them for you.

Re: Activation Code

Here's is a very primitive VI (LabVIEW 8.0) that lists the activation codes from the above mentioned location. Smiley Happy

 

(note that you apparently also get the empty default key. You could suppress that with a little bit more code)

Re: Activation Code

It would be quite trivial to make this into something that would be acessible from e.g. the tools menu in LabVIEW, similar to the code capture tool.

 

Still it's probably not worth cluttering the menus with something nobody ever uses. Smiley Wink

 

 

Of course I have no idea how to get the activation keys on a non-windows OS. Anyone?

Those are funny activation keys.  What Unicode page is that?  Smiley Very Happy
