Sound and Vibration Toolkit Unlicensed After Activating Measurement Suite

Updated Nov 11, 2019

Reported In


  • Sound and Vibration Toolkit
  • LabVIEW

Issue Details

I recently activated the Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite. I know that the functionality of the toolkit is included within the Measurement Suite, but when I look in NI License Manager, the toolkit still shows up as unlicensed or evaluating. Why doesn't my activation of the Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite also activate the Sound and Vibration Toolkit?


This is expected behavior when activating the Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite. The Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite includes all the same functionality of the toolkit, as well as other analysis features. However, the suite and the toolkit are still two separate products. Both the toolkit and the suite will give you access to the same VI's in LabVIEW under the Sound and Vibration palette, but activating the suite will not activate the toolkit. For a full comparison of the Sound and Vibration Toolkit and Measurement Suite, see the Sound and Vibration Software Overview and Feature Comparison

To avoid getting such message, refer to the solution in LabVIEW Licensing Wizard Asks Me to Activate Sound and Vibration Base Each Time I Launch It.
