Floating license upgrade from v7 to v8

Hello,



I am about to upgrade the floating license on our license server.  It says it will deactivate the previous license.



If I go ahead, will users have to upgrade to v8.0 or will they still be able to run older versions (7.X)?



Thank you!

    Hi,


     


    Actually, v.8 and v. 7 licenses don't affect each other. It means that you can have two product versions activated on your computer while you are migrating your tests.

    Hello Tanya,



    That's not what the message I get says.  It clearly says:



    "One license server cannot hold multiple keys for the same product. ... The new license key will replace the existing one."



    So I guess I would need to install the v8 license key on another server so users have time to move to the new version?



    See include clip showing the message I get.



    Thanks,

    Hi,


     


    You'd better contact our Support team to resolve this issue. 


    Actually, if you get this message, it means that AQtime 8 is already activated on this computer. Do you have several keys in your account for this product? As you are using a Floating User license, they can be merged. Our Support team can assist you with this.
