Issue Details

I am using a temporary activation code to activate my NI-FBUS Configurator 4.1 but I encounter the following warning

The activation code you provided cannot be used. Its expiration date is either expired or earlier than the current expiration date of the license.

How can I resolve this issue?


NI-FBUS Configurator 4.1 comes installed with a permanent evaluation code. In order to resolve this issue, the content of the license file need to be modified. By changing the keyword permanent in the license file to expired by using text editor software such as Notepad, user will be able to activate the software by using temporary activation code
