Hi

We have had a student working with an educational version of acad and know we get the message "produced by an autodesk educational product" every time we open the dwg,s made by him. And if we use any part of this dwg in a new dwg -the new dwg will also be "infected" with this "virus" :smileywink:
How can we get rid of this message?

You can't. Educational version are just that and may not be used for
commercial purposes, so if the student is doing commercial work with it he
is violating the license agreement.

Do you mean you want to know how to use drawing work done with an
educational (not for profit) version? And you post your company name? To
use any part of that drawing contravenes your license agreement on the edu
version and your full version.
Try google why we argue back and forth here why this 'virus' exists.

Not a virus. AutoCAD gives you warnings not to use the content. A virus would infect without knowledge.

Very easy.
Don't use an EDU version for commercial work.

I was quoting and the first 'why' meant to read 'while'
