don't post private info like serial numbers to a public forum i am having the admin delete your s/n info

the serial number was probably upgraded to something else you would have to contact autodesk or your reseller to track down the serial number info

You can use the online method to activate your license here: or

Or you can can call Autodesk Product Registration and Authorization:

1-800-551-1490 > Option 1 (English) > Option 1 > (Stand-alone)

Asia / Pacific: 65.6735.5688
Europe / Middle East / Asia: 41.32.723.9595

You will need to provide your serial number and the request code.
