Issue Details

I am using an evaluation version of National Instruments software, but the evaluation expires soon. What is the process to extend the evaluation period of the software?

Solution

You can visit the online Extending Your Evaluation portal to extend the evaluation period of some NI software. On this page, you can also find and browse a complete list of NI software that has evaluation extension available.

Alternatively, for software that has evaluation extension available, you can use NI License Manager to extend the evaluation period. Complete the below steps to extend the evaluation period for 45 days.

 
  1. Launch the product you are evaluating.
  2. When the Activation Wizard window appears, click Log in.
 
 
  1. Log in to your National Instruments User Account. If you do not have an account, you will be given the option to create one.
 
 
  1. Either click Extend Evaluation or click Yes if prompted to extend the evaluation period.
 
 
  1. Follow the prompts in the NI Evaluation Wizard to complete the process.

If you are attempting to extend an evaluation period using an activation code, refer to the article Activating National Instruments Software Products to complete the software activation.
