CV EVA licence required

Hi
I am upgrading from CV EVA 6 to 8.x, how do I get the new CV licence?
I assume I can use my existing BC & CA licnece but where do I get the CV licence as this was not needed before ver.7?

Thanks
DJ

Re: CV EVA licence required

You need all-new HP ordernumbers from HP before you can go to Webware and transform them into the 'license keys' - good luck.
