Problem transferring licence from old PC to new PC.

Hi, We need to transfer the AutoCAD LT2009 licencekey from an old PC to a new PC. We used the Portable Licence Utility, but unfortunately the import in the new PC doesn't work. The error code is [17.1.84]. This file is not a valid transfer file. So, on the old PC we get a message that the export was successful, but on the new PC we get the error. Besides that we now have on the old PC a problem that the licencekey isn't active any more and we can't use AutoCAD any more. Please advice how to solve this issue. (screenshots are available). Thanx in advance! Greetz, Mathieu

I do not know if "License Transfer Utility" will work with 2009, but you can try.

You will need an Internet Connection, and an Autodesk user ID and password, available from the Autodesk Register Once website:

More information about the "License Transfer Utility" can be found here:

If you cannot use the License Transfer utility, you need to contact Autodesk Product Registration and Authorization Customer Service

Hope this helps...
