Problem

When looking at a V11 and V12 license file, how do I tell them apart?

Solution

V12 licenses have a slightly different structure than licenses in the past. Previously the license version was solely the number after the daemon specified in the license file. For example, the file below would be considered a V11 license file:

V12 licenses, at first glance, may look like V11 license files because they will have 11.0 after the daemon but will also have "V12" appended to the vendor string:

If the license file has 11.0 after the daemon and has V12 in the vendor string, it is a V12 license. If it only has 11.0 after the daemon and does not have V12 in the vendor string, it is a V11 license file.
