Autocad 2014 x64 30 day trial not working as trial

We are having a certified Autodesk trainer onsite to give a training class.  Autocad 2014 x86 version 30 day trial was installed on 11 computers 2 days ago. This worked fine. The computers were running Windows XP then.  Since then the computers were upgraded to Windows 7 x64. Then AutoCad 2014 x64 30 day trial version was installed.   Now the software opens but immediately prompts to Activate. Is there a way to get this working as a trial again to allow the onsite training.


Thanks for your assistance.

The installation detects the previous install and advanced the clock to terminate the trial. AFAIK you are out of luck with these PCs.

Wait for an Autodesk employee to answer if there is another option.

Thanks. During part of our automated Windows 7 deployment an image backup is created for each computer. We are rolling the PCs back to Win XP. At this point several have finished and AutoCad trial is working as expected. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
