ST9 License Manager Downward Compatibility

Creator
Creator

With plans to upgrade from ST6 to ST9 in 2017, preparations are being made to upgrade the current SE license manager on our license server to the LM version provided with ST9.

 

As we will continue to use ST6 for some time before upgrading to ST9, the question is if ST6 will be compatible with the ST9 based LM?

Yes, ST6 should run just fine with the FlexLM server delivered with ST9 and an ST9 license file.

We are running ST6 with the ST9 license server.  No issues.

Thanks for confirming Ken.

Re: ST9 License Manager Downward Compatibility

also, be advised that you can do a dual install... I have ran ST9 on top of ST6 without issue.

Would you recommend the complete uninstall of the ST6 based LM prior to the install of the version that came with ST9?

 

The files appear to install in the same location - C:\SEFlex\Program\.

If it were my systems, I would uninstall the old version first.
