2. Upgrading license server workstations

2a. License server workstations - upgrading from Allplan 2016 or 2017
Start by updating your license(s) at the license server. After this, upgrade the clients.

Check the version of the license server. If you use the license server 2016-1-4 or later, you can find the version number (Build-ID) at bottom left in the License Settingsprogram. The version number should be at least 1.614.x.x. If you cannot find the Build-ID, you work with an older license server. In this case, update the license server first. Download the software for the license server from Allplan Connect.
