Hi Eva,
Note that you cannot use the same Activation Code that you currently have for your AutoCAD for Windows, Activation Codes are unique per transaction.
We suggest that you download an AutoCAD for MAC from the Education Community and generate a new Activation Code by going through the whole Activation process.

Hi, I have downloaded the student version of autocad for mac. It's working, but I'm having some trouble keeping up with my class. So, I need to install a windows version in my other computer. Can I do it, using the same activation code and product key? Or what can I do?
