You can allow an overdraft of up to two times the number of licenses you purchased with NI. By default the option is disabled in VLM. When enabled the default overdraft is 50% extra of your current licenses. The assignment of permissions beyond agreement limits, along with the overdraft settings, is noted in the volume license agreement log that you send to NI at the end of the agreement period.In VLM 3.1 or higher, you can enable overdraft by clicking on Tools in the Toolbar at the top of the software and then clicking preferences. This will open a new window where Overdraft can be selected in the left hand panel. Check the box Allow Overdraft and set the overdraft percentage that you would like. The overdraft applies to all products in your agreement license file, except those products that use concurrent licenses. You must accept the terms and conditions notification before overdraft can be enabled in NI VLM.
You have the option to check Enable pay-as-you-go if you want to enable pay-as-you-go. This setting reminds you to send your VLA Log to NI in order to cover the overdraft by purchasing the corresponding licenses.Please Note:
