will I still be able to use it to fully access an 8.0 ES server?
I believe it will work fine, but some functionality will not be available, of course because of LC not being version 8.2.
well, following your belief, I installed 8.2 WorkBench,
but when I tried to connect to an 8.0 server,
it popped up an error message:
this version of WorkBench is incompatible with server !!!!!!!!
so you can't have 8.0 and 8.2 servers in the same company?!
there's no backward compatibility?!?!
that's very inconvenient....
That was a bit unexpected. However, we are running both ES 8.0 and 8.2, and I have both versions of workbench installed on my computer, so you can have both versions. I should have told this earlier. Anyway, I hope you will be able to install workbench 8.0 again, in addition to workbench 8.2.
Hi, I got a new problem...
this is what has happened:
1. I deinstalled 8.0 WorkBench
2. installed 8.2 WorkBench
3. discovered 8.2 WorkBench couldn't access 8.0 server (see above)
4. so I deinstalled 8.2 WorkBench
5. reinstalled 8.0 WorkBench
6. but it now gives me an error message saying,
either my Configuration (server name, port) is wrong
or my ID/password is wrong,
or the server is not running.
I checked everything, couldn't see anything wrong.
I can login to WorkSpace and AdminUI,
server is running fine, no error in server log whatsoever.
How do I revive my WorkBench? please advise.
Sorry, I don't have any answer to this at the moment. I will let you know if I find something. You could ask Adobe support.
