I have the serial number and product key, but why when I using Revit 2014 it still says that I am using a viewer mode which means I cannot save, publish, export and print. Any one have some idea how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance~

Welcome to the community.  Is your product network licensed or stand-alone?

Hello. You either loaded the viewer or have not activated the product. Did you ever activate your copy of Revit? When you start the program, does it ask you to activate? If not:

  1. Click the drop-down next to the ? at the top right of the screen
  2. Click “About Autodesk Revit…”.
  3. Click “Product Information”
  4. Click “Activate” and follow the prompts

I'm having the same issue, only happens when I check out a license, if anyone finds a solution to this can they please publish it? I'm running the Infrastructure design suite.

In the LICPATH.LIC, put the IP adress of the network licence server instead of the 0.

This worked for me.
