Is this not possible or can you download 2018 and 2015.3 with your 2018 purchase ?

Answer is No, but it would be great to buy past versions.

But only a matter of time before someone cracks the gag, "Why? Modeler is identical in every version".

If any such purchase came with a "YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN" disclaimer, why would a company not make that possible? Free cash.

I guess it's a question of how they would charge and other admin logistics like deciding Standalone or Upgrade (Downgrade?) path. A nightmare I imagine, which would probably impact current operations. Though it would be great to be able to toggle the plugins which are only compatible for some versions of LW. But it just ain't done - just imagine everyone waiting on LW2020 or whatever, but they say "Never mind you can now buy LW7 for only $99.00". That would actually be funny.

I luckily have several different licenses of different versions of LW because I occasionally find them very cheap even with license transfer, so don't fear having them open at the same item....though I do wish it would reflect more in my quality of work. The artist. The artist...... :D

That is such a waste to not bundle the final build of 2015 platform with 2018 as current 2018 is still going through bug fixes.

We recently bought another seat of LW 2018. We asked Newtek to allow us to use 2015 with the license also which they granted. So just buy 2018 and ask them to include a license for 2015.

50one is selling a 2015 license together with Syflex for $400 + transfer (just read that thread).

Nice to know, at my current studio I'm on 2015.3 but I'm now moving to another studio which has 2015.3 on macs, I will however be on pc plarform but was hoping they could get 2015 with 2018 just so the workflow stays streamlined ... with their current setup. Also they wanted coaching so having 2015 would be best.
