Autodesk offers a package license file option, which allows the use of a suite of products that are packaged and sold together. The package license file contains a set number of licenses for four different versions of your software. Running an instance of any one of the versions uses one license in the package. Packaged license files support prior versioning for subscription users. Package license files operate under the following guidelines:
- Package license files come with the current version of the software and three previous versions of the same product.
- License files can be combined with license files for different products. For more information about combining license files, see Example of a Package License File for Combined Autodesk Product Versions.
- Package license files cannot be combined with non-package license files for product versions contained in the package. For example, you cannot combine an Autodesk 2009 package license file with a regular license file for an Autodesk Product 2008, 2007, or 2006.
- Both the PACKAGE and INCREMENT sections of the license are required for licensing to work properly. When you combine license files, be sure to include both of these sections.
- License borrowing, option files, and licensing cascading work the same for package licenses as they do for regular license files.
- A new license file supersedes an older one.
