WebStore, LabVIEW software expiring or activation
Why does the NI License Manager show my license expiring under the local licenses for some Labview Modules even though I have entered the name of the license manager or applied a Labview research license file?
When using the WebStore license manager to license LabVIEW anything listed under local licenses in the NI License Manager can be ignored.These temporary licenses were created when the software was installed. Labview may use these licenses and display expiration dates associated with them. Once they have expired your software will then use the licenses provided by the WebStore Labview Concurrent license manager. You will typically see an entry called SoftwareSolutions(release and year) listed under the network license manager entry.
When using a local disconnected research license file provided by WebStore to license LabVIEW the only entry listed under Local Licenses in NI License Manager needed will be called SoftwareSolutions(release and year). All others listed can be ignored. These temporary licenses were created when the software was installed. Labview may use these licenses and display expiration dates associated with them. Once they have expired your software will then use the licenses provided by the WebStore disconnected license file you applied.
If you experience issues running any of the LabVIEW modules, please send a screen shot of the error message you are seeing and your NI License Manager with the appropriate tab for the license type you are using selected to firstname.lastname@example.org
