Solution 31451: Determining the Type of Software a License Belongs to by Using the 31 Character License Number.

How do I determine the software my license belongs to by using the license number?

Older versions of Texas Instruments software use a 31-character license to activate.

The first three letters of a license number will allow you to determine what type of software the license pertains to and will also help you determine the license model.

The chart below will help you determine the type/model of software you own.
