Autocad 2011 is generating same Request Code on different computers

Please I need a quick help, we have 50 seats license for AutoCAD 2011 with one serial key. We installed a fresh system with Windows 7 all drivers loaded and Autocad 2011 but not activated. Then we got the Acronis image of the system and dump to all other computers since we have same model computers. Now what is happening when on every computer we try to activate autocad it generates same request code and autocad is not activating autocad by saying that same request code is already done with the activation of the system.

As learned by the activation process of autocad it takes MAC address to generates the request code, since it already took the MAC of first computer, now it is generating request code according to that first computer.

We uninstalled and reinstalled autocad, but still same problem.

Any solution, where would be able to get different request code for each computer.

If you only have single product installed in your machine, please see if force re-activation helps.


To re-activate, delete the adsk*.data file to force re-activation.


On Win7

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\flexnet\adsk*.data


If it is giving same Request Code, you may need to activate the product before you image.


Please let me know if that helps. Thank you.
