Installing AutoCAD on new computer

I have recently purchased new computers in our office.  I am trying to install my existing seat of AutoCAD 2012 on my new desktop.  I have the serial number that was provided to me some time back from Autodesk.  When I attempt to activate the software, I get an invalid serial number message, with no additional information.

that serial number was probably upgraded try activate manually per this link or use this method

You can use the online method to activate your license here: or

Or you can can call Autodesk Product Registration and Authorization:

1-800-551-1490 > Option 1 (English) > Option 1 > (Stand-alone)

Asia / Pacific: 65.6735.5688
Europe / Middle East / Asia: 41.32.723.9595

You will need to provide your serial number and the request code.
