Issue Details

I bought IEC 61850 LabVIEW Driver and I didn't receive a DVD or USB Key. I recieved only the Serial Number. When I try to activate this driver in Licence manager with the code I get on, I have an activation error :
How can I activate it ?


First when you try to activate software in NI Licence Manager, be sure you have installed the software. 
For the IEC 61850, you have to
  1.  Go to our website to download it 
  2.  Launch the installation
  3. Activate the product in 2 different ways: 
- get an activation code on with your Serial Number and the Computer ID. Open the Licence Manager, click on activate software and select Enter Activation codes.
- or chose an Automatic activation through a Secure Internet Connection.
