i tried in the support center without luck
my problem is I re-installed autocad 2012 for mac but I cannot activate the program because of the reached activation limit. I went to the autodesk student web page to grab my activation code and in my software page i found out that i downloaded autocad electrical ap, map 3d, mechanical, map, raster design and rev it which I DIDN'T. so what i should do? thanks


when I checked again today it seems i downloaded maya too. so, anyone can help me?

I wish I could help but I'm having the same problem. I had computer problems which required me to re install and there were installation errors that required me to restart the installation process over and over. Evidently each of which "costed" me an activation. I went to "technical support" only to roam around for hours not finding what I need.


come on...someone help...we can't be the first two people to run into this. There has to be a way to request additional activations

You only get so many free installation attempts before it starts to look like a licensing violation on the Autodesk end.


Please call Autodesk Product Registration and Authorization in person to resolve:​19649&id=9830778

Asia / Pacific: 65.6735.5688

You will need to provide your serial number and request code. And provide info that matches the registered owner of the license.
