Issue Details

  • I can't find my FRC Serial Number or License. I have lost my LabVIEW Serial Number for FIRST.
  • My Kit of Parts (KoP) is missing the LabVIEW and NI Update Suite Liense Number. Why am I missing it? Was it not included in the KoP?
  • How can I find the serial number (SN) to activate my FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) software if I have lost my software packet that came in this year's FRC kit of parts?
  • Where can I find the software I need for this year's FIRST Robotics Competition if I don't have the installation media from my software packet?
