Uninstall AutoCAD 2014 Student Version

382 Views, 2 Replies

Hello, I have a PC that had AutoCAD 2014 Student Version on it. I've uninstalled, cleaned up reg keys, and deleted folders.

 

After reinstalling with the company's full version of AutoCAD 2014, it still opens saying "The drawing file being opened was not created by a product from an Autodesk Education Suite".

 

Is there any way to edit reg keys or the program to be the full version? 

 

I'm thinking about formatting and starting over, but wanted to ensure that's my only option before proceeding.

 

Any help is appreciated!

 

Thank you,

 

Jacob

1. There was no need to uninstall the EDu version. While in AutoCAD, start ABOUT command (type it), click on PRODUCT INFORMATION button, next to the SERIAL NUMBER entry click on the UPDATE button and enter your new information.
2. You can still probably do that.
