Expiring Activation Codes Appear as Invalid in NI License Manager

Issue Details

I received temporary/expiring activation codes for my National Instruments software. When I enter these codes into NI License Manager (NILM), I receive an error message saying The activation code is invalid.

Solution

Expiring Activation codes require NILM version 3.7 or higher. Earlier versions will only recognize permanent activation codes, so temporary codes show up as invalid.

Additional Information

NI License Manager 3.7 is only compatible with Windows XP SP3 and later. Earlier versions of Windows cannot use expiring activation codes to evaluate NI software.
