Issue Details

I have been using LabVIEW 201X on my computer for a while now. Recently I have updated to LabVIEW 201X SP1, but my serial number does not include license for the service pack. Once my evaluation period is over will I be able to use the non-SP1 LabVIEW release?


Each SP1 release is a major release of LabVIEW and thus independent of the non-SP1 release. Although the service pack is independent, installing the SP1 version will overwrite the existing files of the non-SP1 version, so re-installing the original version will be necessary to run the non SP1 version once your evaluation period expires.
