Autodesk 2015 products can obtain license only from 2015 compatible version of Network License Server – v11.12. Lower versions of Network License Server cannot serve license to 2015 products. It was recommended in the past as well to upgrade the license servers each year to the latest version, but from 2015 onwards this has been made compulsory.
