Issue Details

I purchased the myDAQ hardware and the NI myDAQ Software Suite 2016 software to use on a Windows 10 system. I needed to re-install the software and driver but I do not know what serial number to add into the Serial Number field. How I can get the serial number to activate it?


If you received the NI myDAQ Software Suite with LabVIEW Student Edition, you do not need a serial number for activation.

Additional Information

Serial number activation is needed for other versions of LabVIEW such as the LabVIEW Professional Development System.
