Licenses Do Not Have an Exact Match in New Agreement License File

Updated Jan 29, 2019

Reported In


  • Volume License Manager

Issue Details

When installing a new license file in NI Volume License Manager, I received a prompt stating:

The following licenses from your old agreement license file do not have an exact match in your new agreement license file:




NI VLM automatically matches licenses in the old agreement license file with licenses in the new agreement license file that have the exact same product and licensing model​. Click next and you will be given a chance to reassign or delete the permissions associated with any licenses that NI VLM could not automatically match.


Additional Information

If you have an Enterprise Agreement (EA), it is likely you can get the exact licenses added to a new volume license file to prevent any complications with transferring. Active EA holders may contact for assistance with this change.
