Re: Combined package files not working

I think I'm seeing it now - since my 2009 and down serials are part of a subscription, they have been upgraded to 2013 licenses and are being lumped in when the license file is appended.

I have legacy machines running ACAD 2008, so I will need to: A. get an exception/new license from AutoDesk or B. Run the 2009 to 2006 file on a different server? Thx.

you can't do option b and be legal with autodesk

Let me throw in a question: If my 2009 serial is now valid for 2013, why cant I use the 2009 file to run a 2010-2013 client?

Hi Robert,

 

The 2009 serial number isn't valid for 2013, rather it's been upgraded multiple times to a different 2013 serial number.

I'm going with option C: Get the 2008 users upgraded to at least 2010. Thanks all.
