Are community and professional editions different binaries?

I want to upgrade our clusters to the newest version of the compiler, but the person who has access to the license PIN isn’t working today, so I can’t download the professional version. Can I just install the community edition and hook it up to our license server with the same result?

Our 17.1 professional release just came out, which is not the same as the 16.10 community version.

The 16.10 community versions were the same as the 16.10 professional
versions, but that may be the case when a new Community Edition
is released.
