I have uninstall everything from NI and install labview academic version. Without even need to import a license, labview automatically find the license previous imported into NI license manager (the academic one).

Thanks everyone for ideas! Here is a summary of what I have learned.

1. It is not quite clear whether labview community version and professional version share the same binary files. It is not clear if there is a way to switch from community license into academic license or professional license. Seems like no way yet.

2. people may try

move away from the C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\License Manager\Licenses and see if the Education edition is loaded instead. 

Remember to move the file but not remove it.

3. or try download a academic version of installer and install labview. not sure.

4. to enjoy both versions, try VM


It used to be easy to have different flavors and versions of LabVIEW, but not any more.  😞
