here is the solution that worked for me. Just follow these steps and download should work then.
visit this site http://students.autodesk.com/?nd=register
read the sentence below "Registration" and click on "click here" to request a registration email
in this mail you will find an activation link, click it and from then on Autodesk will open its doors for you
Hope this works for you too.
the activation letter isn't being sent to me and it won#t allow me to click on anything without redirecting me yo the same webpage and when i type in my e-mail it says that my account has already been activated?
I would like to apologize for the inconvenience as there was an issue with the Education Community site looping users through a "resend activation prompt", lasting through the weekend and into this morning.
The system glitch affecting availability has been resolved and you can now access your student benefits via the link below.
Please note for future reference, you can download software from our autodesk.com site and run as a trial for temporary access, and or request a license from the Autodesk Education facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/Autodeskedcommunity).
The problem I am having is that I can't dowload Inventor Pro.
I get the licence screen showing my licence and then when I click the download button it just reloads the page with a video and nothing happens.
Can anyone help?
This problem is happening to me. I tried the work around and got the message "this account is already activated..."
The student download (free software) link just takes me to a white page. Help!!
