Usage of autocad via windows parallels

Hi all, 

I'm currently setting up my boss' Macbook pro in his switch from a PC to Apple. He installed the program "Parallels" to run Windows on his Mac, as he wanted to avoid purchasing Autocad for Mac for several thousand dollars. He already has Autocad 2010 on his windows desktop. Am I able to sync/transfer/download the preexisting Autocad on the windows desktop onto the new Macbook, which is, again, running Windows via Parallels?

Sorry in advance if this is an easily solvable problem -- I don't have any previous experience with Autocad.

Welcome to the peer forum. 


Assuming the license is valid for AutoCAD 2010 still, I don't forsee this being a problem. Good luck!
