install AutoCAD 2009 on new computer

I own a copy of AutoCAD 2009 with a non expiring license. I have the serial & the Product Key says N/A. I will start work in an architect's office (for a few years I hope) and we tried to install my copy on their computer (they operate on Windows XP). We got it on the computer and it tryed to activate by getting (I believe it called) an activation code automatically on line... but couldn't connect. When I sent a request for help to Autodesk online I recieved this response
 
"response:
I see that you need assistance with a product that is 2009 or older.
Technical Support:
Autodesk no longer supports products that are 2009 or older. "

Is there a way to get my program to work on this new computer? Thanks.

HI,

 

try the license tansfer utility instead, so you can export the license from your previous system to a file and then import the license on the new installation from that file.

Be careful, when starting the license manager to export the license you have to know the id of the destination workstation. So start on the new system the transfer utility, write down the id the dialog provides and use that id when exporting the license!

Not knowing for sure and you stated the Product key was N/A but I looked in the AutoCAD Knowledge base for Product keys.

2010: 001B1

2011: 001C1

2012: 001D1

2013: 001E1

2014: 001F1

Maybe 2009 is 001A1?

Charles is right.  The product key is 001A1 and so long as you never upgraded it past 2009 either manually or under Subscription, then it should still activate.  You may need to send in your activation code to get a manual activation.
