Issue Details

I want to develop a LabVIEW program on another machine using my volume license serial number. After the development, I will deactivate the license used on this computer. Will this free up the seat being used?


Yes, by deactivating the software in NI License Manager on that machine the serial number will no longer be associated to that edition of the software. It is recommended that you check with your software administrator that the computer is not longer checking out a seat.
