To Install erwin Data Modeler (r8 or r9)
- erwin DM r9, r8, and r7.3 can all co-exist on the same computer. Installing r9.x will not overwrite r8.x or r7.3.
Similarly, installing r8 will not overwrite r8 or r7.3 Upgrading the same "dot" version *will* overwrite the existing version of the same release number. For instance, installing 8.2 will overwrite 8.x.
- erwin Data Modeler r8 and r9 contains a default Community Edition license "out of the box" that enables Cerwin Data Modeler to be installed and used immediately without a permanent license and none of the below actions.
erwin Community Edition functionality is limited to 25 entities/tables, but you do not need to take any further steps to install and operate erwin as a Community Edition. After installation, changing the license will unlock additional functionality.
