Issue Details

In order to add an option to my MP500, the NI NFC Support Team asked me to generate a .mprac file. Where can I find it?


To generate the MP500 License Context File (.mprac) please follow the below steps.

  1. Connect your MP500 to your computer using USB or ethernet cable.
  2. Turn it on.
  3. Open MPMANAGER 3.X version.
  4. Go to the Connection tab.
  5. Click on Connect to connect your device.
  6. Once the information about your device appears, click on GENERATE LICENSE CONTEXT FILE.

Once you have the 'mprac' file, share it with NI Support and you will be provided with an 'mprau' file which you can use for hardware activation.

Additional Information

This License Context File is only required to activate options on MP500 TCL3 and PT1 products.
