Unable to activate 2014 Inventor

I am a student who has to use inventor for my Scottish National 5 qualification.  I have got so far, but have not been able to activate 2014 for some reason. I can see the programme, but as soon as I open and attempt to use any of the tools/drawing the screen freezes.  I then have to switch off my whole computer.



 I have been able to download and install the product twice, but I have been unable to activate it with the product information provided in an email from autodesk.


I therefore have the serial number(xxx-xxxxxxxx), Product description (Autodesk Inventor Professional 2014) and Computer name.  I also have the activation coded (14 sets of numbers in groups of 4).


My computer has plenty of memory to run the programme.  I just need to understand how to use it, rather than just look at it.  Your advice would be very welcome.

Many thanks Robert

Hi Robert,


Do send me a Private Message (click on my joane.bonghanoy profile name and then “Send this user a private message”) with your Serial Number so I can check on it further.
