I have a question that is probably a simple yes but I'd like to know before pulling the trigger. I did a search and this is the closest topic I could find with my question. I am new to the school here and see that the student computers in our Machining program are running SolidWorks Education Edition - Academic Year 2014-2015 SP5.0
I have received in the mail, an updated disc for the Academic Year 2015-2016 and installed it on one of the computers as a test. I have entered in the license server as it is entered on one of the computers running the older client (25732@<myserver>) but am unable to launch the application because of a lack of licensing. Is this happening because the license manager on <myserver> is running an older version? Should I be installing the latest License Manager on <myserver>? And by doing so, will the clients running the Academic Year 2014-2015 still function? Or will they now see that there are no licenses available for their version?
Logically, I want to say that it'll work. But being a school and me being relatively new, I'd rather not mess it up and then have to scramble to fix it. Especially when I'm the only IT guy here!
The license server has to be updated and activated to the newer version of SolidWorks.
