  • Chapter 7Licensing Your Target and Creating the Installer 1,Target Distribution 1,Guide7-4ni.comOptions for End Users Installing Your ProductWhen you ship your target to customers, you must send them the LabVIEW 8.2 redistributable CD, your target installation CD, and any printed documentation you create for your target. End users can use LabVIEW and your target in evaluation mode or in licensed mode.As the OEM, you acquire sets of valid serial numbers from National Instruments to activate the LabVIEW you resell and your target. End users can purchase your target and obtain a valid serial number from you.Running LabVIEW in Evaluation ModeIf end users do not activate LabVIEW and your target with the correct serial number, LabVIEW runs in evaluation mode. National Instruments sets some of the evaluation mode limitations, but you can configure other limitations. Work with your NI contact to define the configurable limitations. Evaluation modes contain the following limitations:•(Required) Front panel window and block diagram window watermarks on all VIs the end user creates.•(Required) VIs that the end user runs in a My Computer or main application instance automatically stop running after five minutes.•(Required) All embedded applications that the end user builds with an evaluation version of LabVIEW contain an Evaluation version of LabVIEW message when the application begins running.•(Configurable) Evaluation stops working after a predetermined amount of time.•(Configurable) Any applications that the end user builds with the evaluation version stop working after a predetermined date.Running LabVIEW in Licensed ModeWhen end users activate LabVIEW and your target, LabVIEW runs in licensed mode. End users then can use your target in LabVIEW without any of the limitations listed in the previous section.
