Can I re-download Autodesk Inventor?

560 Views, 2 Replies

I recently downloaded Autodesk Inventor Professional 2013, and I accidently messed it up by moving a folder or something when I was organizing (I have a lot of Autodesk products) and now it gives me this error message (see bottom)

I would like to simply uninstall and reinstall, but I got this for free because my school paid for it and I need to use it for my college course engineering project, and I don't want anyone charged twice.

Please help me...

Hi 129712971297,

 

Welcome to Autodesk Forum Community.

You can activate the poduct again via online activation after re-installation.

Else, you can opt to activate manually here. Please note the on-screen Request Code.

 

Let me know if that helps. Thank you.

I have the same issue, and i was wondering if there was any way for me to fix it, without reinstalling the software?
