The recommended solution is to update to VLM 2.1.1 or later; however, if you are using 2.1.1 or earlier you will still need to create a single volume license installer for each National Instruments product. For example, if you want to create a volume license installer for LabVIEW 8.6 using the LabVIEW 8.6 Platform DVD Installer, then you would need to select <DVD Drive>:\Distributions\LabVIEW 8.6\LabVIEW860\ as your installation source for the volume license installer. Also, if you want to create a volume license installer for LabVIEW 8.2 using the Fall 2006 Academic Site License DVDs, then you would need to select <DVD Drive>:\LabVIEW 8.2\ as your installation source for the volume license installer.
Note: If you want to create a volume license installer for Multisim or other Electronics Workbench product, use the Academic Site License Circuits Option DVD and select the Circuit Design Suite folder as your installation source.
