I just registered and downloaded the update.

When I try to run it gives me a message that Autocad and SP1 must be installed. I purchased Autocad from the App Store but it seems that this update doesn?t recognize it.

How do I work around this problem?

Thanks

Michael

Hi Michael,

The Update is for full AutoCAD, not LT that you own.

All,

There was a suggestion a couple pages back that you could download the free LT 2014 30-day trial, until AutoDesk finishes the Beta test of the fix for LT 2013 versus Mavericks.

 

FYI:  According to an online chat I just had with an AutoDesk representative, once you download the free trial, at the end of the 30 days you WILL NOT be able to get the upgrade from 2013 to 2014.  You will have to pay for the full version of 2014 and not save the $600!

 

You would think that AutoDesk would waive this requirement, since they and Apple have caused us all quite a bit of heartburn???

YES. UPDATE DOES NOT WORK ON AUTOCADLT2013.

MAVERICKS MORE THAN 200 NEW FEATURES.

YES, ONE OF THIS IS ''KILLING THE AUTOCADS''!...

No, according to AutoDesk the upgrade from LT 2013 to LT 2014 works.  But if you use the free 30-day trial of LT 2014, after the 30-days goes by you cannot use the upgrade to 2013.  You have to buy the full version of LT 2014.

Are there plans to release an update / beta build for Mac LT as well?

Hi Mark,

 

I would like to confirm that trial usage has NO bearing on the Autodesk upgrade process and policy.

 

If you have an eligible AutoCAD LT for Mac 2013 license (excludes the AutoCAD LT for Mac app), you would currently be able to upgrade it to AutoCAD LT for Mac 2014 regardless of whether or not you have already installed the 2014 software. As a matter of fact we actually encourage doing so, as it provides a testing opportunity prior to committing with a purchase.

 

My apologies for the false information that was previously provided to you and please don't hesitate to let me know if I can provide additional clarification!

Hi,

 

What sort of timeframe is there likely to be a student version of AC2014 available in?

 

Cheers
