i've been searching this infor everywhere but was not able to find the exact answer to my question.
i've heared (and read somewhere a few months ago) that if i have a SUBSCRIPTION i and have old versions of the software,(for example at the moment the old version would be the acad 2012) then i can give this old version of the software to one of my employees to install it at home, as long as i have an active subscription. (this is not the home use license that you can read about everywhere, since that is a copy of the current product... i am talking about an old product!)
so is it true that if i have a subscritpion and i am using 2013 then a legal copy of 2012 can be given for home use to my employees as long as the subscription is active and running? if yes, can you please provide some offical text?
See Page 18-19 here: Home Use rights
(g) Covered Software subject to a Home Use License must be the same localization and release as the Covered Software subject to the corresponding Primary License;
Notwithstanding sub-section (g) If you're on Subscription, I don't see why a previous release would not be permissible, particurally if the reason for installing the previous version is because the current version is overly bug ridden. (ie all initial releases)
Call Autodesk or your Reseller to be sure.
Take a look at this link
You may continue to use the Previous Version you have legally owned under the following
It would still be worth talking to your reseller as there may be other legal requirements in different jurisdictions
I am pretty sure the main thing would be to not have two people using the single license simultaneously. Your new version at work and your old version at home will be on the same license...
