Hi everyone

Sorry, if I've missed something obvious, but I'm on version 6.0.151.34 with one of the old Premium unlimited licenses.

I can see on the changelog that version 6 is currently up to 6.0.230.49, but the only version on the download page, is the latest version of 7 (7.1.40.6) which I don't want (licensing).

Is there any way the latter version of 6 can be downloaded from somewhere?

Thanks in advance

Mat

I'm pretty sure the premium unlimited is grandfathered to include future versions... email support@lansweeper.com to make sure, but that's what they've always said about that license.

Hey JacobH

Thanks for that - the last time I spoke to them directly I was strong armed into talks about paying for a V7 upgrade; but I'll give them a whirl and we'll see.. I'll reply back here in case anyone else needs to know in the future...

Cheers

Generally speaking, older installers are not provided unless it is for specific troubleshooting purposes. Upgrading to the latest version will also give legacy license holders UPNP scanning and a more efficient scanning algorithm along with general bug fixes.

Maybe I misread his post, but his reason or not upgrading to 7 was licensing, so he wanted to stick with the latest version of 6.

I understand, but regardless of license, you can always update. The reason why he doesn't want the latest is presumably because he doesn't want to see the feature gating warnings.

What is a gating warning?

Warnings you get if you do not have access to specific features if you are using a legacy license. There will be a triangle warning icon in the corner which pops open if you click on it.

Oh. I didn't know the legacy Premium license was limited now - it used to be limited to no helpdesk and only a single scanning server.

That's good to know - I'll have to pass that on to past employers who use that license.

Sorry for taking a while to come back to this - I thought I had notifications switched on...

Anyway - thanks JacobH - you understood my situation exactly - the worry was that we couldn't move to 7 without changing license, but as Esben.D has explained, this isn't the case; you just get limited functionality, which I am fine with.

Thanks both for clearing this up and hope it helps anyone else with a similar thought in the future!
