  • Volume License Manager

Issue Details

My company has a Volume License Agreement with access to the latest version of software, and I need to create a disconnected license file for a client computer that has installed a previous version of the software. Can I still create a license file for that client machine? 

Solution

If under your contract, you have access to the latest version of software, you can always activate a previous version of that same software.

For example: If you need to create a disconnected license file for a client computer that has installed LabVIEW 2015 and you have access to LabVIEW 2017, you can create a disconnected license and activate the previous version of LabVIEW successfully.
