How to deactivate licence in order to activate to an new computer

i recently signed up and downloaded some Autodesk Applications, and activated them with a student licence.

I will soon buy a new computer and since the student licence permits the activation to one computer only, I am wondering what is the procedure to deactivate the autodesk products on my old pc, in order to activate them on my new pc.


Thank you

Hi zakstefanou,


The deactivation process is to uninstall the software on the old machine and reinstall on the new computer. As mentioned, the student license does only permit one activation, and thus you will need an activation code to override the system. You can request an activation code by either calling our Registration and Activation group (contact detail below), or by sending me a Private Message (click on my philip.s profile name, and then "Send this user a private message") with your serial number and corresponding request code.


Registration and Activation

Americas - (800) 551-1490

Asia / Pacific - 65.6735.5688

Europe / Middle East / Africa - 41.32.723.9595
