My serial number for my National Instruments software is wrong, or I have a new serial number. I want to use a different serial number for the NI software on my computer without uninstalling and reinstalling software. 

Solution

To change your serial number, you'll need to deactivate and then reactivate your software using the new serial number. 

1. Deactivate your software, following the steps in the KB article: Deactivate or Remove License for NI
2. Reactivate your software by following the National Instruments Activation Wizard Walk-Through and using your new, updated, or correct serial number.
