License type matching AGAIN??

Just had a look at the Raster Design read-me, it shows "Install and License Methods Must Match Host Application".  Please, tell me this doesn't mean the license types have to match??  Surely this is a typo, after the screaming at this from the 2010 release (and the mixed licensing fix posted)?

Out of the box AutoCAD Raster Design 2011 installations can be a mix of Deployment or DVD/Download. For example there is no longer a need to build a Deployment to install a multi-seat standalone AutoCAD Raster Design 2011 on a multi-seat standalone AutoCAD 2011.

 

You can also use a network seat of AutoCAD Raster Design 2011 for a standalone or multi-seat standalone AutoCAD 2011.

 

The only mixed mode licensing that does not work is standalone or multi-seat standalone AutoCAD Raster Design 2011 on network AutoCAD 2011. Those with standalone licenses of AutoCAD Raster Design 2011 and network seats of AutoCAD 2011 can request a no cost uplift to a network license for AutoCAD Raster Design 2011 by contacting the Autodesk Business Center:

Thank the sainted Boole, I thought I was wholly screwed for a moment.  Thanks for the prompt response Douglas - it really *is* good to have AutoDesk folks in here on a regular basis.

 

Could you have a look into getting the readme updated to reflect what you have said here?

Hello,

 

I have a customer who has an NLM version of Inventor Suite (which also contains Autocad & Mechanical). His new HP printer was accompagnied with a full version of Raster Design 2011 SLM and he wants to combine those two. Thanks to this post, we've found this isn't possible.

 

You mentioned there should be a free uplift (at no cost) in those cases of SLM -> NLM of Raster Design Suite. Apparantly, this seems to be wrong at the EMEA-region when contacting the appropriate channels. One should pay for this upgrade. Or is this a wrong communication among the Autodesk-channel?

 

Best Regards,

 

Wim
