How to restore an older version of Archicad?

I'm a student and I used to download Archicad 22 but it would be good for me to work in Archicad 23 but the educational licenses only let me upgrade to 24. How can I upgrade from 22 to 23?

AFAIK it is not possible since EDU serial numbers are assigned yearly.

Licenses are always downwards compatible. This holds true for EDU as well.

Meaning, a license for 24 can also unlock version 23, 22, 21, etc....

But of course this is one way. License for version 22 won't unlock 23, 24, 25....etc.

You get the idea.

It is not an issue of compatibility but access. EDU versions have serial numbers that expire yearly and  IIRC if you skip one year then even if you are a student then you will not get access to that version and even if you do, since that version is more than a year old, then the serial for 23 would not be valid.

If you are a student there is no reason to be working in an older version. All my current students are using 25 at this time.
