Is it possible to reuse hardkey and license after upgarding from Freelance v6.2 to Freelance v8 or v9.2
I am planning to upgrade Freelance 2000 (Version 6.2) to version 8 or version 9.2 with Windows XP or Windows 7 . But I do not know if I can reuse the same hardlock and license?
I tried to run the project (which I exported from V6.2) with Freelance V9.2 on windows 7, it works fine under demo mode. But when I install license (v6.2) as well as plugged hardkey (parallel port) I could not switch to production mode
I recommend to upgrade to latest new version Freelance 2013, because you get more connectivity options, more features and more power to controller. Contact local/regional ABB people for more information.
Answer to your question, You can USE license but need to be upgraded from ABB and hardlock(parallel port) not supported in higher version, you will get new USB KEY from ABB with license upgrade. Pls get connected with local/regional ABB sales people.
Let us know if you need more information/help in upgrade.
