Issue Details

I renovated my license for LabVIEW and after doing this, my options for Source Control disappeared. I can't find the options neither looking for them inside the Tools contextual menu of the LabVIEW toolbar nor inside the Options window. 



The functions of Source Control are available only for LabVIEW Professional Edition. After renovating your license, there could be two possible scenarios: 
  • You renewed your LabVIEW license for all the editions except for the Professional edition.
  • After the renovation, the Professional edition deactivated. To solve this issue, you have to go to the NI License Manager and reactivate your product.
