I heard we can activate product with difference version S/N.
Can we use serial 2014 product for installation and activate 2013 product?
for new license and without request previous version
Each release (2013, 2014) have their own serial number and product key. The activation will not work if the serial number and product key don't match the version.
Hope it helps.
I want to add one more thing
If you a subscription customer and want to use flexible licensing benefit.
You need to use your latest serial number to install and use previous versions of Autodesk software.
For example, you had used 2013 version with 000-00000001 and now have a upgraded serial number 000-00000002 for 2014.
But because of some reason, you want to change your product to 2013.
Then you need to uninstall 2014 first and reinstall 2013 with a latest serial number 000-00000002.
And what about the product key?
i heard that you can 2013 with the 2014 serial number but with the 2013 product key.
but you must have a subscription to do this.
You can only install/activate a 2013 version with a 2013 serial number and a 2013 product key.
Subscription customers with a 2014 version may request the use of the 2013 version. To do that, they need to follow these steps. Once their Previous Version request has been handled, customers receive a 2013 serial number and the corresponding 2013 product key to install/activate the 2013 version.
