Installing NI License Manager

Updated Nov 2, 2023



  • NI License Manager

I would like to install NI License Manager. Where can I get the installer?

  1. Download NI License Manager from this link: NI License Manager Download .
  2. Install the software.
  3. Once it is installed you can open it by going to Start>>All Programs>>National Instruments>>NI License Manager. Here you can see the licenses you have available for all installed NI software.


  • NI License Manager is installed automatically with any NI software that requires a license to work. If you are installing licensed NI software, you do not need a separate installer for NI License Manager. 
  • You can upgrade NI License Manager by downloading and installing the newest version available. Deleting of older version is not necessary, it will be updated automatically within an installation.
  • If you use network licenses in NI License Manager, after an upgrade you do not need to reconfigure the License Server as the settings won't change after upgrading.
