Using SD 5.x licenses on SD 4.5

Hi,
We bought some licenses for SD5.x, but migration is planned on summer, can we use those licenses on SD 4.5 until then? If we nac, how to use different format of licenses?

Thx, Dusko

Re: Using SD 5.x licenses on SD 4.5

Hello Dusko,

Export the licenses using the "Backup License File" option at the license manager. Locate the file and open it with your favorite text editor.

It should have a series of lines like that:

ABCD EFGH IJKL MNOP QRST UVWX YZAB
"Annotation Message"

In theory, using ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZAB as License Key and Annotation Message as Annotation, should work in OVSD 4.5.
