I have a old navision license file and correponding config.txt file. Now I want to know for which version of navision this license is valid. I have tried with 3.70, for which it is not valid, for 2.60 it is valid.
Now how to know for which version (highest), this license is valid?
The config file has following line:
2,010 Server - Microsoft SQL Server Option 1
and after that it has 3010 Granule, nothing in-between.
I am not sure if it right forum or not for this question, sorry if it is posted inwrong forum.
Validity comes in two parts. The license it self will be valid for a major release, so 2.xx or 3.xx or 4.xx etc. So since you can not run 3.70 its a 2.xx license. In addition, new features may have been added such as new tables. In your case 2.60 was the last of the 2.xx versions (2.65 etc were mainly SQL fixes), so your licence would be a 2.60.
This not totally correct. I thin this system came in place with version 3.10. Up till about version 3.0 or 3.01 licences did not expire and you could use any licence with any version. This meant you could allways use the latest executables on your old objects even if you were not on support.
But as you say … that was a long time ago and most people don’t need to know this. But of course we see cases like this post were someone does need to know.
