> Duh!! Dean gave you the correct answer. As your license agreement states, you can only transfer a license with the prior approval of Autodesk. They are the only ones who can give you a binding answer to your question. Anything else that anyone else tells you is heresay, and Autodesk isn't bound to abide by it. My impression, from my own experience and from other discussions here, is that they only allow this in special limited circumstances, and with certain paperwork being done in advance. I strongly doubt that you are going to get a blanket okay to "sell" a license on the open market. But that's just my impression. The only way to get a real answer is to contact Autodesk, through your reseller.

Dean always gives those kind of obvious and yet useless answers...sorry Tom! I bought AutoCAD in the past DIRECTLY from Autodesk...Now I need a reseller to ask permission?? I don't think so! The only time I use a intermediary is when I pray to GOD through Jesus Christ. I don't think Autodesk is on that level yet, although they may have led you to believe that they are!! I talked to an Autodesk "advocate" who sent me the "paperwork" designed for Corporations, not individuals. I have bought and sold other major software from former user's and was able to transfer the license without a hitch. What make's Autodesk so special? I know about the agreement...I get them all the time from Credit Card companies ...always making small unnoticeable changes, but why this attitude?? BTW...I have very little contact with a reseller...I'm an individual and so I don't get the interest from a reseller that a corporation gets.

> I bought AutoCAD in the past DIRECTLY from Autodesk...Now I need a reseller > to ask permission?? I don't think so! I cordially invite you to do whatever you want to do. Autodesk has to approve the license transfer in advance. You need to go to WHOEVER you acquired it from to get your answer. But apparently you've already been given an answer, and you just don't like it. Sorry! Dumping on people in here isn't going to change anything. As Paul noted, nobody in here has said they're fond of Acad's policies, we've just stated the facts as best we know them. If you feel a need to ventilate about the way Autodesk does business, you should use your direct connection to them to do so.

I'm surprised that everyone recommends asking my reseller...but it really doesn't matter I just wanted to voice my frustration of finding out that I have no investment value left especially after the 2000, 2000i and 2002 version thing that cost about $1500 alone. I've vented...thanks for listening! The following is not ventilation...LOL BTW is my last reseller the one I should talk to about this issue? I have had five (5) resellers, including Autodesk directly since I purchased AutoCAD version 11 in 1988! Perhaps others have had one reseller since their original purchase? I'm under the impression that Autodesk really doesn't want to phase-out individual "licenses". I can also see the core product disappearing or rather being completely absorbed by the "vertical" products. I'm feeling much better now...but I'll go check my BP to make sure!! Tore
