A lower software version may be run using a higher version license by creating a text file named 'level.txt' in the installation folder of the earlier product version. For a workstation installation, the level.txt file should be located on the server with the executable. For a standalone installation, the level.txt file should be located in the program folder with the executable.
The text file should have two lines, described as follows:
- Line 1: Product Level. Depending on the product level, enter 'Basic', 'Plus', 'Advanced', or 'Ultimate'.
- Line 2: Product Version. Enter only the version number of the current license, for example, '15'.
When using a standalone version, the license file of the current version should also be copied into the installation folder of the previous version.
NOTE: This process may not work when versions are separated by more than one major release, in which case the license file for the older version should be requested.
