Issue Details

I purchased a LabVIEW third-party toolkit, such as Arduino™ Compatible Compiler for LabVIEW by Aledyne-TSXperts or Python Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW by Enthought.
I am not able to activate the license either automatically through Internet connection or manually. How can I activate the license?


Perform the following steps:
  1. Check in you e-mail inbox and look for an e-mail sent by address. This mail contains a license ID and a password
  2. Open the Third Party Add-On Activation Wizard in LabVIEW by clicking Help » Activate Add-ons....
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. When prompted use the provided License ID and Password in the appropriate fields and click Activate
  1. Launch LabVIEW with administrator privileges by right-clicking LabVIEW.exe and selecting Run as Administrator. This is necessary in order for the activation to become permanent.

Additional Information

In case you cannot find the e-mail with the activation code, check in your SPAM. Also, it is possible the activation e-mail was sent to the purchasing manager and not to the end-user. 

If you are still unable to find this email, contact National Instruments Technical Support with the following pieces of information:

  • Order Number from the Purchase Order
  • Part Number or Product Name
  • Contact Information (e-mail address, phone number, etc)
Note: Third-Party Add-Ons for LabVIEW are offered by independent third-party providers who are solely responsible for these products. Contact your third-party provider to get activation instructions/support for third party add-ons.
