Hello, we installed and hardened a CF 11 Standard edition installation on a client's server.

Now the client is ready to go live, however CF 11 license is not available to purchase.

If we buy the CF 2016 edition today, can we possibly activate CF11 with a CF 2016 edition license?

You cannot use a CF2016 to activate CF11 but you can request a downgrade when you have purchased it. This only works through their volume licensing purchase though, not the standard retail copies.You will need to contact Adobe directly though to request this. You should be able to email them at cfinstal@adobe.com too and ask for a downgrade.One of them may reply to you on here with instructions but you could wait a while.

Also please make sure you purchase a "volume license" from one of our re-sellers.

The retail licenses available on our website, are not eligible for backward licensing.

Thanks,
