Issue Details

I built a LabVIEW application (EXE) or LabVIEW library (lvlib) that I would like to generate licenses for when I distribute it. How can I do this?


To help you determine what you need for your specific application, the LabVIEW Tools Network Developer Center has the following document: Choosing the Correct Licensing Method in LabVIEW Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit and NI License Manager

The best resource for general questions regarding these add-ons is the LabVIEW Tools Network Developer Center.

In general, for Applications you will want to look at the NI License Manager Third-Party SDK

This enables customers to evaluate third-party software before purchasing and experience the same purchase, evaluation, and activation process as NI products. 

For Libraries you will likely need the Third-Party Licensing and Activation Toolkit.

Again, if you are unsure of what you need or have any questions regarding these different options, your best resource for these questions is the LabVIEW Tools Network Developer Center.
