Issue Details

I am an administrator for an Academic Site License or Volume License Agreement and I am installing LabVIEW into a public computer, such as a computer lab. I do not want users to be able to see the serial number on the splash screen when they launch LabVIEW. How can I prevent the serial number from being displayed?
 

Solution

To remove the serial number and user information from the splash screen that appears when LabVIEW launches, a token must be added to the LabVIEW.ini file.
This file is located in the directory in which you installed LabVIEW. By default, on a Windows 7 machine, that path will be:

<Program Files>\National Instruments\<LabVIEW>

Once you locate the file on disk, right-click the file and select Edit. Then add the token:

UseMarketingSplash="True"
Save the LabVIEW.ini file to apply the changes. Now when you launch LabVIEW, the splash screen will appear without the serial number and user information.
