Will there be a warning before turn off of 3.0 license

At a previous company that I worked for, I had a 2.0 license. I was using
Ariadna. At some point during the EAP, my license was killed. It was
killed for 2.0 and Ariadna.

Will there be any kind of warning when this happens for Aurora? Things
don't move so swiftly around here and it will probably take 2 wks to get a
new license. I would hate to have to do without Aurora for that long (or
worse, go back and reinstall 3.0 and redo all of my projects - eek).

I have two instances of IDEA on my machine, Ariadna and Aurora. Why you not
use both instances too?
But in last 2 month i use Aurora only - it come to be good and stablest. :)
So, setup different directories for system and config of Ariadna and Aurora
and use them separately.

I use both at the same time. Some of our team uses the eap, others use
3.x. Thus only a few of our projects have been converted to eap (the
ones I work on regularly). But I have to work on the non-eap projects
from time to time. I don't really want to have to close the eap projects
for the artifical reason of "no two ideas on one machine".

Will the fact that the 3.x and EAP version are installed in different
directories allow for both to run concurrently?

You must do the additional step of making sure that the two versions use different system and config directories. This entails making distinct each installation's "idea.system.path" and "idea.config.path" properties (found in their idea.lax file).

For example:

For 3.x:

-Didea.system.path="~
.IntelliJIdea
system" -Didea.config.path="~
.IntelliJIdea
config"

For Aurora:

-Didea.system.path="~
.IntelliJIdea_Aurora
system" -Didea.config.path="~
.IntelliJIdea_Aurora
config"

If you use different config and system folders for Ariadna and Aurora, yes -
both are work correctly.
Thanks!

I have not used 3.x in months. I have converted all of my projects to
Aurora. It's only going to take me time to re-enter my projects.

Me 2. I have used only aurora and have not kept old projects around. I've kept a copy of 3.0.5 so I can go back if I need to. Once the final Aurora release comes out won't we be able to use the last eap version until we upgrade to the final release? Does idea go online to validate the key?
