AutoCAD 2012 Trial Download

Is it possible to still download a trail of AutoCAD 2012?

 

AutoCAD 2013 is unsitable due to compatibility issues with add-ons, so ideally I need to download a trial of AutoCAD 2012 to check compatibility before I purchase a licence.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Callum.

Hi Callum and welcome to the forums!

I can provide you with download links for AutoCAD 2012 but I have to mention that AutoCAD 2012 licenses are no longer being sold by Autodesk nor by our resellers. In order to be able to use an AutoCAD 2012 license, you would need to purchase the 2013 version with subscription and then take advantage of the previous version usage benefits provided by Autodesk subscriptions.

Here are the links - please note that they will expire in 72 hours:

AutoCAD 2012 32-bits

AutoCAD 2012 64-bits

 

 

Let me know if you need any further info!

Hello Inciner,

 

I've just sent the requested links via Private Message (small envelope next to your name at the top of the page when signed in).

 

For future reference, you can request supported previous version media / download links directly via our Media Request Form.

Welcome to the community Manish!

 

You can now download most current + supported previous version releases of Autodesk software directly from Matt, our Virtual Assistant. Check out this AutodeskHelp blog post for more info on how to access Matt and navigate to the afore mentioned download links.

Hi Philip,

Can you guide me through Matt to download the AutoCAD 2012 Trial? I am unable to get the download links from Matt.

A separate question, if we had purchased the 2014 version, will we be able to downgrade to the 2012 version via a media request in the customer assistance form? I am currently on Vista OS and it is not compatible with 2014 version. Thank you!

Welcome to the Autodesk Forums!

 

Typically if you are on Subscription what you are asking is allowed as you have access to several versions previous. Though if it is one license this "downgrade" is meant for one user only even on subscription.

If this is a new Seat of AutoCAD then what you purchased is that seat only and not a previous version.

If this is an Upgrade to the 2012 then you are allowed a short time period to run both so that you can get the new version up to speed but you will be in violation of the EULA if you continue to run the original 2012 Seat and the Upgrade at the same time; say with two different users.

Hey Charles. I like your tag line. I'm going to plagiarize... if you don't mind.
