When we received our v21 License info each license had it's own license password in addition to the Customer Password. I had already activated my license using our existing customer passwords like we had in previous versions. It seems to be working fine, any reason I should use each unique license password vs our customer password? I like being able to just have one password to remember.

Is the DCADWIN.lfx file the only file that stores our license info now? I sync my Datacad folder between home and work and I removed that file from the sync and my seats seem to be staying activated now.

I was still seeing this in v21.00.00.08 when my licenses were being deactivated.

You can use your Customer Password to activate any of your licenses. Alternatively, for security purposes, each of your DataCAD licenses has a unique License Activation Password which can be used for activation instead of your Customer Password. You can provide the unique license activation passwords to your employees.

Some of the lines in DCADWIN.msg differ between DataCAD 20 and 21.

Thanks Mark. I had a mix of those 2 but I am sure it's my own doing. I like to keep my Datacad install for each version at C:\Datacad so I don't have to repath a ton of stuff but the install won't install to a previous versions directory (for good reasons I am sure :lol: ). So in order to do that I rename my C:\Datacad directory to C:\Datacad X, run v20's uninstaller, install v21, delete that v21 C:\Datacad folder, rename the C:\Datacad X folder back to C:\Datacad and then I ran the v21 repair thinking it would reinstall everything over to get all the main new goodies into my v20 directory. I'll change up my process next time and use Ultracompare to compare the core files between the versions so I don't miss anything next time. Thanks again! :D
