Product Versions

InduSoft Web Studio, EmbeddedView, and CEView should all have the same version number, which uses the syntax X.Y+SPWW (e.g., InduSoft Web Studio v7.1+SP3), where:
  • X represents the Family version. The Family version changes only when major enhancements are added to the product technologies and concepts.
  • Y represents the Sub-version: The Sub-version changes when minor enhancements and/or new features are added to the product.
  • WW represents the Service Pack. The Service Pack version changes when you must install add-on packages to accomplish the following:
    • Upgrade files for the version previously installed
    • Fix bugs in the product (showstoppers and no-workarounds)
    • Provide minor enhancements before releasing the next version of the product

    Each Service Pack release supersedes the previous Service Pack release. For example, SP2 includes all the contents of SP1 and all newly upgraded files, bug fixes, and enhancements. SP3 includes all the contents of SP2 and all new upgraded files, bug fixes, enhancements and so on.

InduSoft Web Studio, EmbeddedView, and CEView all can run projects that were developed in previous versions of the product. However, previous versions cannot run projects that were developed or modified in newer versions. Opening and modifying a project in a newer version will update the project to that version.

For example, you cannot run version 6.1 projects using IWS version 6.0 but you can run version 6.0 projects with IWS version 6.1.

Important: We issue each license for a specific Family version and Sub-version (X.Y), and the license is valid for that version (including Service Packs) only. The license is not valid for a newer Family version or Sub-version of the product. Therefore, if you install a new version of IWS, EmbeddedView, or CEView, then you must upgrade your license to the new version being installed. If you install a Service Pack only, then you do not need to upgrade your license.
