License Key Version and Compatibility

The License Key version refers to the licensing scheme used in ElecKey that applies to the protected application. There are currently two License Key versions available.

 

         LK2.0.0.0 is the licensing scheme used in ElecKey since version 2.0.0.0.

         LK2.0.8.24 is the new and default licensing scheme used in ElecKey version 2.0.8.24 and onwards.

 

The application using the License Key version LK2.0.0.0 (i.e. protected by ElecKey before version 2.0.8.24) is still compatible with the current ElecKey version 2.0.8.4 and higher. But, the License Key version LK2.0.8.24 is not backward compatible. Therefore, you must update and deploy ElecKey version 2.0.8.24 or higher to your system, including the protected application, KeyCheck API, LicenseGen SDK, and Activation Server. The table below lists the files that must be updated.
