I'm helping my organization to buy AutoCAD Design Suite Premium. I have ask for Quotation from vendors and the reply is that they can only provide the 2014 version (That means no 2013 version can buy from vendors).
As I search from Autodesk website, the AutoCAD Design Suite Premium 2014 requirement is a 64-bit systems (Windows). But my company is running 32-bit Win7 Professional.
My question is:
1. Can I buy the license of 2014 version and then downgrade to 2013 version?
Some components of the Design Suite 2014 are available in 64-bit only - therefore the requirement.
You can buy Design Suite 2014 with Subscription which entitles you to download and install version 3 older versions of the software, incl. 2013. But rather consider upgrading your OS platform to 64-bit. You will be rewarded by much better performance of your CAD tools with access to more than 2GB of RAM.
