The Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit enables you to license add-ons that you create with LabVIEW. Users of a licensed add-on must evaluate or activate the add-on according to the activation methods you allow. The Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit provides methods for licensing two types of add-ons:

  • A development add-on consists of a library of files, such as VIs or custom controls, that others can use when developing in LabVIEW. Apply licensing to a development add-on so that LabVIEW automatically checks the license status of the files at edit time.
  • A deployment add-on is a stand-alone application that you build in LabVIEW, such as an executable, and then distribute to users. Apply licensing to a deployment add-on so the add-on checks the license status when users run the add-on.

The following topics provide resources and procedures you can use to create, license, and distribute an add-on.
