Licenses granted by NI Volume License Manager are backwards compatible with previous versions of NI Software. This is also true for disconnected or home licenses. Being granted a disconnected or home license for a specific NI software version, allows access to all previous versions.
For example, if your volume license says LabVIEW 2018
, you will also be able to activate any previous version of LabVIEW with this one seat of the license.
You are only able to generate disconnected or home licenses in NI Volume License Manager
. This functionality is not available when using FlexNet Publisher license manager software.
For more information about accessing older software versions, see how to Download Older Versions of NI Software.
