AutoCAD Electrical 2009 to AutoCAD Electrical 2013 using Network License

After creating deployment for 2013 and updating LMTOOLS on the lic. server, I requested my new lic. file. New lic file works for 2013 but now 2009 does not.

After searching and reading posts I'm thinking I may be able to get this to work IF I request new licence files for both versions on the same day and then combine them.


Can someone verify this?


We are under subscription. And I'm aware 2013 allows 2012, 2011, and 2010. So I just missed it by a year.


We also have no long term plans to maintain 2009. We just need them to both get a license while we work in the customization from 2009 to 2013.

Hello Dale,


Yes, for AutoCAD Electrical 2013 subscription license, it covers current version (2013) and plus three old version (2012, 2011,2010). All these version products could use one 2013 sub license.




If you still want to use AutoCAD Electrical 2009, you could use antoehr license server service or apply a new license for 2013 and 2009 on same date, then combine them.
