Issue Details

I am looking to download the NI ELVISmx driver. Will I need to use an activation code or serial number to activate the software?


No activation code or serial number is required to use NI ELVISmx. When downloading from the National Instruments website, you will only be required to have an active account. You will be prompted to create this account upon download.

Additional Information

In contrast, the Web-Based Installer NI ELVISmx Software Suite does require a serial number to install and activate. This is because the Software Suite includes LabVIEW and Multisim which are not free products.
