Additional Information

When you decide to move from the evaluation version to the licensed version of LabVIEW for macOS, installing the licensed version will upgrade the existing evaluation version. The reason you cannot activate the evaluation version with a serial number is that there is no License Manager for Mac OS X or Linux. Running the installer from purchased media or the online download will install the complete version of LabVIEW on the computer, and you will not have to explicitly activate any components.
