Default Multiple ptmp licenses on same iLok

Hi, I'm new to Pro Tools so excuse me if this is a stupid question.

I just wondered if I had an ilok with a license for ptmp 8 only, could I open ptmp 7.4 with this license seeing as it's an older version? It would be helpful to me if I could as one of my systems is still running osx 10.4.11 so I can't use ptmp8 on it.

If this isn't possible then would it work if I had a ptmp 7.4 license and ptmp 8 license on the same iLok? Also, if I was to upgrade from 7.4 to 8 would it still work with both versions or would 8 replace 7.4 on the ilok?

Hope this makes sense.

In addition, if anyone is looking to sell their ptmp 7.4 license please get in touch.

I am pretty sure a 7.4 wont work with a 8 license.

When I upgraded from 7.3 to 8 my 7.3 license stayed on a ilok and was not taken. So yes 7.4 should stay on the license when you upgrade. But if you go to PT9 you do have to surrender one license. When I went to PT9 Avid gave me a choice so I surrender my 7.3 license or 8.0 license. You can have 7.4 and 8.0 on the same license, you just cant install the two different programs(7.4 8.0) on the same computer.
