Complete the following steps to use NI VLM Import Utility to collect client information:

  1. Copy everything in the Import Utility directory to a network drive or portable media, such as a USB drive, or the client machine. You can find the utility in the following locations:

    Windows 8/Windows 7/Windows VistaC:\ProgramData\National Instruments\Volume License Manager\Import Utility\
    Windows XPC:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\National Instruments\Volume License Manager\Import Utility\

    Note Note  NI VLM Import Utility uses an XML file, nivlmImportUtility.xml, to determine the custom fields that are available, which fields clients must complete, and which are optional. The nivlmImportUtility.xml file updates whenever you change custom fields. If you modify the custom fields, you must copy the updated nivlmImportUtility.xml to where you use NI VLM Import Utility.
  2. Have clients complete the following steps:
    1. Run nivlmImportUtility.exe on the computer that they want to add to NI VLM.
    2. Click Submit Information and complete the form. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).
    3. Clients should save the resulting XML file in a common place, such as a network location, or email the file to you.
  3. Refer to Importing Client Data to import client information.
