Issue Details

I am granted permissions to NI software through a Volume License Agreement. I have heard that the behavior of my license is different depending on whether it is computer-based or user-based.  How can I know which licensing model i am using?


Contact your software administrator to determine the licensing model being used. The software administrator is responsible for distributing and managing all licenses and models being used in a Volume License Agreement.
