Seriously! We are paying subscribers to Autodesk. We are the honest, hard working people. If someone wants to hack and steal your software, they will. We are not trying to. All you are doing is complicating a process that should be easy. Yes, the serial number used to be on the installation case, but now a Group ID is needed. I have entered every number that I can find on the subscription center web page with no success. Thanks for helping the honest hard working people of America. Maybe we should go back to manual drafting...

I am having a problem with the serial number.  To download the program I needed the serial number as well as the product key.  I did that.  Now in order to use this product as active... I need to put in the serial number again.  I did this in the box in Product Registration and Activation.  It tells me that this serial number is invalid. Try Again.  So I do.  Now it needs a group ID.  I can not find a group ID.  What do I do?

Why confuse users with the different terms if they are the same exact thing? I have been looking for a group ID for the past 30 minutes, only to find out that its the same as my serial number.
