What is activation?

Activation is the process of obtaining an activation code to enable your software to run on your computer.

You do not require an activation code to start evaluation of DAQmx Steps. You just have to open the License Status from TestStand menu Tools » Mesulog - DAQmx Steps » License Status… and to click on Start evaluation.

License ID and password

When you buy a license of DAQmx Steps, you will receive a License ID and a password. A License ID is a numeric code of up to 8 digits. A password is an alphanumeric string associated with the License ID.

For each activation, the license server will decrement the number of activation left for the given License ID.

Activation code

To receive your activation code you need to purchase a DAQmx Steps Professional Edition.
