Archived: How Do I Use NI VLM to Create Volume License Installers for LabVIEW 8.6 and Academic Site License DVDs?

This document has been archived and is no longer updated by National Instruments



Primary Software: NI Volume License Manager
Primary Software Version: 2.1
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

Problem:
I use NI VLM to create volume license installers for my National Instruments software. How do I use NI VLM 2.1 or earlier to create volume license installers for my:
  • LabVIEW 8.6 DVD
  • Academic Site License DVDs
  • LabVIEW Student Edition Software Suite DVD
  • LabVIEW Student Install Option DVD
  • Developer Suite Toolkit CD


Solution:
NI VLM 2.1.1 now supports the creation of volume license installers for:
  • LabVIEW 8.6 DVD
  • Academic Site License DVDs
  • LabVIEW Student Edition Software Suite DVD
  • LabVIEW Student Install Option DVD
  • Developer Suite Toolkit CD


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.
