Will my CA ERwin Data Modeler r9 License Work with Release r8? - CA Technologies ERwin Knowledge Base
Yes. The erwin Data Modeler licenses for r9 can be used to license CA ERwin Data Modeler r8 and/or r9. However, an r8 license is not valid for r9. In order for the license to be recognized, it must be installed in the correct folder. In other words, in order to license r8 with an r9 license, the r9 license must be copied into the r8 folder..
If you are unsure of which version your license is for, simply open the license file in a text editor (such as Word Pad or Notepad) and look at the first FEATURE line:
# Generated: 01/01/12 02:03:20
FEATURE ERwinDM erwinmod 1.000 13-dec-2013 uncounted \
HOSTID=0012ab34cd56 user_info="My Company, INC.|1234" \
The fourth item in the line will be a numeric value. If the value is “1.000” or "8.xxxx", the license is for r8. If the value is “9.000” the license is for r9.
