    License Old Products with New Serial Key
    In This Topic

    Purchasing a new license entitles the you to any previous version of the same product. This is supported with a few extra steps you must perform.

    1. When purchasing or renewing a new license for a current product, you will get a serial key following the new licensing format.
    2. You must first activate the new license using the GrapeCity License Manager on their development machine. For more information, see Activating a Serial Key.
    3. You must then run the C1LicenseActivation utility. Upon launch, the utility will discover the new license and allow them to generate and install old-style keys to their development machine. This will allow older versions of controls to be licensed properly since they only know how to recognize old-style keys. For more information, see Using the C1LicenseActivation Tool.
