  • The major versions must match in order for the agent to run
  • The License Statistics Agent version may be up to five minor versions older than your License Statistics version, but cannot be newer
  • Micro versions are ignored

For example, for say your License Statistics version is "6.15.2":

  • the The major version number is "6" and must match the between License Statistics and License Statistics Agent
  • The minor version number is "15" and some backward compatibility is supported (as detailed below)the micro version is "2" and may be as old as version 6.10 for License Statistics Agent, but cannot be older, and cannot be newer than 6.15 (agent version 6.16 or newer is incompatible)
  • The micro version number "2" is ignored
