Issue Details

I am trying to activate the FRC software, but when I try to use the serial number it gives me an error saying that the activation code is invalid. It also, looks like it wants a 20 digit code instead of a 9 digit code.


Make sure in the previous step, you have selected "Automatically activate through a secure Internet connection". This will use the 9-digit code that was included in the Kit of Parts.

If you are still having issues, or if you are getting an Activation Warning, see the following article: Activation Warning in NI License Manager for FRC Software.
