Does the ArcGIS License Manager need to be updated when upgrading to ArcGIS version 9.3?
Yes, when upgrading to ArcGIS Desktop version 9.3.x, the ArcGIS License Manager must be upgraded to version 11.4 or 11.6.
The newest version of the License Manager (FLEXnet Publisher v11.6) also works with ArcGIS Desktop 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2.
To find out which version is currently being used, open License Manager Tools, click on 'Help', and select 'About'.
With ArcGIS Desktop 9.3, it is required to use the new ArcGIS 9.3 License Manager, which is available on the installation media. The ArcGIS 9.3 License Manager can also be used with previous ArcGIS Desktop 9.x installations.
There is no requirement to upgrade the License Manager when upgrading from ArcGIS Desktop 9.0 or 9.1 to 9.2 (if the License Manager was originally installed with ArcGIS Desktop 9.0, 9.1 or 9.2), but due to updates in the latest License Manager version, it is strongly recommended to use the latest version available.
If using the newer, keyless License Manager instead of the previously used keyed License Manager, a new version of the license files will need to be requested.
