Inventory Advisor Tool

Does anyone know anything about the new Inventory Advisor Tool?

 

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=10243574

 

I downloaded and installed it, but it is apparently a trial.  According to the documentation, you get the unlock code from an Autodesk rep., but it makes no mention of where to request the code and I cannot find anything in the software.

 

"Upon launching the application for the first time, you will be prompted to input a user name and unlock code. An Autodesk representative will provide this information to you"

Is this a "free" tool (included in our subscription) that we need to obtain a code for via our reseller?

Hi every body,

 

I tested Autodesk Inventory Advisor (AIA_3.95.1778.zip) to scan my computer that contains Autodesk 2012 and 2013 products.

I get a report from AIA, it only contains Autodesk 2012 product,  no trace about Autodesk 2013 products.

 

Is AIA able to identify the Autodesk 2013 products ? exist some patch to solve this trouble ?

 

Thanks for your anwsers

JR

Hi, I m using Autodesk Inventory Advisor tool to get the numbers of license already used on my LAN, and that's work great, but I want to get the installation type too, and this field only shows some numbers, 0,1,2,3, I'm looking  for some information about this, what does it means each number? Please if someone knows something about it, reply me, or maybe some post or manual to get more info about the tool.

Thanks and Regards

Did you find any answers about the installation type that the Autodesk inventory Advisor find.

What do the 0, 1, 2, and 3 stand for?
