I have a HUL and recently installed 2011 SP1. When I try to go to SP2 I get a fail because my licence isn't valid. How do I get sp2 to download and install? my licence is still valid and in date!!!
Are you using a network license or a standalone license.
An HUL is a home use license stand alone install for users that have license servers at the office. It allows one to have a home install of SW like stand-alone users can have with their stand alone serial number (home or office).
HUL's are not eligible for SP updates. But there is a work around.
The work around is to download the complete SP2 install to disc, (you have an option in the SWIM to download the entire package and not install) from your work computer that uses the license server serial number. Save that complete SP2 install to a flash drive. Then on your HUL machine do an un-install/re-install for SW2011, SP2.
As Anna says,
the HUL is a standalone install at home.
THanks for the info Anna.
I'll enquire with my reseller here to see if this is the best way.
Problem is we're still running SW2010 SP3 at work so downloading via th SWIM may be difficult!!
