I registered on your website for a student account, where I had the opportunity to download free software for tying one year.
After installation there was written "Thank you for buy " , but I didnť buy anything.
So, I uninstall everything about that Autocad .
Everything is right ? I didn´t want to pay for a licence .

Hi Martina,


You did in fact receive a free 3 year termed  Student License of AutoCAD 2012. The "thank you for purchasing" statement is most likely a standard message that is displayed after all successful installations / activations regardless of license type.


Please proceed with the re-installation, accept as a solution if this fully answers your inquiry and let us know if you run into any issues.

I am very happy that response, because I need it necessary for my study.
Well, due to my currently less powerful computer, you'll probably need to download an older version of AutoCAD.
Thanks for your reply
