DO NOT UPGRADE BEFORE READING THIS PAGE!
To facilitate the transition to the new version-numbering scheme, LISTSERV 14.3 will accept both old and new license keys. To find out if you can upgrade to LISTSERV 14.3 with your current license key, please issue a SHOW LICENSE command to LISTSERV and examine the response. It will be similar to this:
License type: Permanent
Expiration date: None - perpetual license
Maintenance until: 31 Dec 2004, serial number MNT-XYZ-1
Serial number: XYZ-1
Build date: 13 Oct 2004
Your license key will be valid for the 14.3 upgrade if:
If your license key meets either of these criteria, you can begin installing 14.3 now.
If the response from SHOW LICENSE reads as follows:
Maintenance until: No maintenance information
It means that you have not installed your maintenance LAK. Maintenance LAKs were introduced in version 1.8e and look similar to this:
In that case, simply install your maintenance LAK and repeat the verification procedure (SHOW LICENSE and check maintenance date).
If you do not have a maintenance LAK, or if it expired before the cut-off date, please contact your sales representative before upgrading to LISTSERV 14.3.
You may contact L-Soft support if you have any technical questions about the licensing requirements of LISTSERV 14.3. Please note however that L-Soft support personnel are unable to issue any license keys or look up existing license keys.
