There are different license types that enable you to use each particular edition of Measurement Studio—Standard, Professional, and Enterprise—for software development. There are different license types for specific non-development scenarios in which you use Measurement Studio, such as debugging or building. The following table lists the Measurement Studio license types, what functionality they enable you to use, and whether the license can be in the Evaluation state.

License Type Functionality Allows Evaluation?
Enterprise Develop, compile, run, and debug applications that use tools and libraries included in Measurement Studio Enterprise Edition. Refer to Measurement Studio Editions for details on the functionality included in the Enterprise Edition. Yes
Professional Develop, compile, run, and debug applications that use tools and libraries included in Measurement Studio Professional Edition. Refer to Measurement Studio Editions for details on the functionality included in the Professional Edition. No
Standard Develop, compile, run, and debug applications that use tools and libraries included in Measurement Studio Standard Edition. Refer to Measurement Studio Editions for details on the functionality included in the Standard Edition. No
Debug Compile, run, and debug applications that use libraries included in any edition of Measurement Studio. This license is intended for use on production machines, to which applications that use Measurement Studio libraries are deployed, but not developed. Refer to the National Instruments End User License Agreement for more information on National Instruments debug licenses. No
Compile-Only Compile and run applications that use class libraries included in any edition of Measurement Studio. This license is intended for use on build machines or other machines on which applications that use Measurement Studio libraries are built or compiled, but not developed. You may not use the Measurement Studio compile-only license to develop source code that references the Measurement Studio libraries. This license type is available only if you have a Volume License Agreement. Refer to the National Instruments End User License Agreement for more information. No
Note: When you build an assembly that references licensed Measurement Studio class libraries, you deploy the assembly to a target machine and run it without having a Measurement Studio license or NI License Manager on the target machine. However, if your deployed application uses Measurement Studio controls at run time in a design-time context, then the target machine must have Measurement Studio installed and the Measurement Studio license must be in a valid license state. The Measurement Studio license type on the target machine must be the same as on the development machine. The license state that governs the Measurement Studio class library behavior is determined at compile time, embedded in your assembly resources, and enforced when your assembly uses the Measurement Studio class library. This also means that assemblies built during the Measurement Studio evaluation period will continue to exhibit evaluation behavior even after Measurement Studio is activated. You must rebuild your assemblies after activating Measurement Studio to get fully enabled behavior.
