You'll need to call Autodesk Support. Give them your Serial Number and Name and tell them you need to install on a new computer

The activation code is unique to each computer.
You cannot use the activation code from one computer on another.


1. Start the program.
2. CLick Activate on the Trial/Activate splash screen and follow the on-screen instructions to get a new activation code for that computer.  (you can only activate a particular serial number twice - if you have already activated this SN twice then contact your VAR as suggested)
