Frequently asked question

Can an old ECP registration code be used for licensing newer versions of ESRI software?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


No, the ESRI products, ArcGIS Server, ArcEngine, ArcIMS, and ArcSDE, require a new ECP registration code for each released product version. For example, an ECP file specifically created for 9.2 is needed to authorize the 9.2 software, and a 9.3 ECP file is needed to authorize the 9.3 software version.
