Is it possible to have access to 2 versions of ArchiCAD (25 and 26) by student/education license? Thanks in advance.

I have been told in the past that the new code for 26 should run 25 as well.

 

I am not sure if the license number is linked to a Graphisoft ID or if it is input directly into Archicad.

If Graphisoft ID then you should be able to update it in the License Manager and then sign into Archicad with that ID.

If it is in Archicad, can you type in the new number (write the old one down just in case you need to put it back).

 

Another option is can you renew the 25 license?

 

You can always contact your local support to find out more - there will be a link in the MyArchicad page.

 

Also if you start using 26, there should be no need to worry about 25 any more, unless you need to be compatible with other users.

Sure.

If you have a license for 26, you can run any older version of the software as well.

But they have different series number and when I renew my license I only got the new code for 26 version and the older one says the license will expire soon (has a different date of expiration). So how to renew also that one?
