Finalist 8.2 software key compatibility

Issue

Upgraded to Finalist 8.2 but getting error message:

{DD:PBFNJOB} PBFN Error: SoftwareKey: Invalid Version
ERROR: {DD:PBFNJOB} Could not initialize PBFN engine.

Cause

Client using a software key that was used in prior versions of the Software.

Finalist 8.1.1, 8.1.2 and 8.1.3 can use the same Finalist software key.  But the Finalist 8.2 key is specific to that version.

Resolution

UPDATED: March 27, 2017
Client needs to use Finalist 8.2 keys that have been issued.

Finalist 8.2 keys will not work with software version 8.1x or vice versa.
