I couldn't install the full version after unistalling student version even after follwoing autodesks instructions

 

went online and found an uninstaller program that found all the stray registry tools tofix it.

 

It's by R-e-v-o

 

hope this helps anyone who has same problem.

Of course the student version is full version, which means you never even needed to do an uninstall/registry clean/reinstall.

Simply go to Help>About AutoCAD>Product Information and click Change Serial Number to change from student license to commercial license.


Just make sure any dwt or block libraries created in the Education version are not used in the commercial version.

Why would you say "of course..." and "simply.."

 

If those were obvious to me do you think I would be asking the question or would have even done it that way?   Now THAT seems obvious to me.

 

I have read more of your posts and you have a very condescending and pious tone to your replies.

 

They are not helpful.

When people chip at me for the way I give FREE advice or help -- I always suggest that they ask the box office for a refund of the fee they did not pay.

It's funny how you replied to my reply about "Dr." Mathers and not my original post.

 

Are you bored and just not getting any?

Patchy , BOB and JD,

 

Look at murphs post.

 

It was helpful, factual and neutral.

 

Maybe you could learn something from it.
