There are three methods for activating licenses depending on whether or not the computer has Internet access.
Make sure the computer is connected to the Internet and you have logged in to your NI User Account in the NI License Manager (NILM). To activate the software online, you can use the identity-based method or enter the serial number. The steps below apply for NILM 4.7 or later. For older versions refer to the Legacy NILM Versions section.
If the computer doesn't have an Internet connection but is connected to an active network, a window will show up requiring you to sign in to your NI User Account. Remove the computer from the network or disable the WiFi to avoid getting the login screen. The steps below apply for NILM 4.7 or later. For older versions refer to the Legacy NILM Versions section.
