Issue Details

I purchased a NI myRIO, but it did not come with a serial number to activate the necessary software. How can I activate my software?


There are two part numbers for the NI myRIO-1900 and two part numbers for the NI myRIO-1950. The 782692-01 (myRIO-1900) and 782690-01 (myRIO-1950) are for academic customers and do not provide a serial number to activate the software. Customers who purchase this option typically have access to an Academic Site License, and can activate the required software through their license.

The other part numbers, 783759-01 (myRIO-1900) and 783758-01 (myRIO-1950), have a serial number that can be used to activate the required and optional software. 

For additional information and pricing, refer to the myRIO product page page . If you want a valid serial number for the device included with the hardware, you will need to purchase the General version, not the Academic version.
