Unofficial Content
This documentation is valid for:

Protection changes have been made as of upgrade 3 of version Xev2.

Therefore, all users who have licenses for the above version will have to upgrade all their licenses prior to installing Upgrade 3.

These licenses are “backward compatible” meaning that once they are activated, it is possible to use previous versions of GeneXus (6.1 U5 and higher).

Users who have centralized licenses or have installed GeneXus Protection Server must update their licenses to version 9.4.16 (or higher), which can be downloaded from http://www2.gxtechnical.com/portal/hgxpp001.aspx?15,8,77,O,S,0,,4177
