Blank Activation Screen

665 Views, 3 Replies

In early Dec 2010 I downloaded AutoCAD 2011 (I already had the 2010 version).  When I opened it, a screen appeared with the option to 'TRY' or 'ACTIVATE'.  When I clicked on Activate the next screen appeared but it was blank except for 2 radio buttons without any text attached.  Supposedly, I have to get a request code from that screen to activate but obviously I can't.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this particular problem?

 

I'm running WindowsXP Pro 32bit with more than enough memory and HD space.

 

Thanks,

Other users have experienced success by logging on as another user with local admin rights and activating that way.
