Is it possible to run Land Desktop 2008 with Civil 3D 2012 under the same subscription contract?
Will Autodesk provide separate network license files or will a new 2012 version license file work for both?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Subscription only allows for you to run your current release (2012) and up to three versions back (2009) only. Your 2008 product, if upgraded thru Subscription has had its lease expired. If you wish to file for an exception, you should probably contact your Reseller.

>>Your 2008 product, if upgraded thru Subscription has had its license revoked.
FTFY - Since it's a perpeptual use license, not a lease. The revocation is, as you correctly noted, a side effect of upgrading, whether via subscritpion (which permits use of three versions back) or simple upgradinng.. A new purchase of 2012 would not result in the loss of the 2008 license, but a straight purchase would cost somewhat more than an upgrade from 2008 to 202.
