i want to know if it is possible to work with two different versies of illustrator when you have 1 licence.

example; I have 1 licences from illustrator. I install it on 2 laptops. One laptop in versie 2018 and one laptop in versie 2020.

Is it possible to work on this way?

When i make something on laptop 1 in versie 2018 and i open it in the laptop 2 in versie 2020 it is good. But when i open it later in laptop 1 again than all i make is change or i cannot open it anymore.

Is this a problem that you know? and what can i do to work good whit 2 different versies?

When I want to make sure to not mess up my files, I use the same version on both machines, which is CC2017 in my case.

 

Unfortunately you cannot install CC 2018 anymore if you don't have it already. Maybe the links to the installers are still available on prodesigntools.com
