When using Dassault Systèmes products such as CATIA, there are various versions available.

The DSLS licence server utility will only allow you to use the same version of CATIA or lower. If you are using CATIA V5-6R2015 and also have DSLS Licence Server R2014x then CATIA will not be able to obtain a licence. More information can be found in the following blog post:
