Has anyone upgraded from SDL-Trados Studio 2009 Professional to SDL-Trados Studio 2011 Professional automatically lost their license for the 2009 version? On trying to reset my 2009 license, I was told by SDL Support that this is what occurs. And if this is so, has anyone also automatically lost their 2011 license on upgrading to the 2014 license? I just upgraded but am not not sure what the SDL-Trados policy is. Myabe someone has had the same experience and can enlighten me.

the same happened to me with the 2009 license. . I now have Trados 2014 installed together with 2011, and they both use the same license and both work as expected. I'm only having one issue - when I start 2011 after using 2014 (and vice versa), I have to re-enter my basic settings (e.g. languages).

As this is rarely the case, I haven't taken up the issue with support yet.
