I guess there is a problem with your internet connection that’s why you can’t get pass this section of the installation. Your software “National Instruments – InsightCM Data Explorer” requires activation like some of the other programs. When a program requires activation, it requires you to connect your computer to the internet to activate the product from the National Instruments server.

The activation appears in some part of the installation phase but usually at the end. Once the product is activated, the installation will complete. Check your internet connection if you can’t get pass this section. If you are using a cabled internet like DSL, try disconnecting the cable at the back of your CPU and then reconnect it.

After that, try opening your web browser and visit a website to verify the connection. After verifying that the connection is ok, go back to the installation and try activating the program again. If the problem persists, go to National Instruments Product Activation.
