i have a guy out on a jobsite. the power on the jobsite went out. he has access to a laptop. the problem is that his software is loaded on a machine that is powered by the electricity from the jobsite. the other problem is that he has loaded his software on a machine here in the office.
my question is how can i put his software on 3 machines? he also already has already had the trial version on his laptop.
if i physically go onto his workstation here in the office and take off all of the autocad from that machine will that enable him to register the software on his laptop?
or can i send him someone elses software and he can just do the trial version again on the laptop?
Load the software as you need.
Use the License Transfer Utility to move the License from one seat to another.
The utility is web based so it should be a simple matter of Exporting from one and Importng to the other.
thank you i will have him look at license transfer utility. i thought he had to have access to his computer in order to do that (the computer that is plugged into the jobsite electricity). i didnt realize he could use the license transfer from his laptop.
he has already loaded the trial version on his laptop and used it for 30 days. it wont let him use the 30 day trial again on the laptop with the same serial number.
that is why i was wondering about my second option. i did not think he could put the trial version on there again. so i was wondering if i went on his workstation here in the office took everyt;hing off of his computer and unregister his software here and then make his laptop his seccond computer.
I believe the recent version of the license transfer utility require access to the internet -- license is uploaded to adesk, and then downloaded to a differet machine (that has the same ADesk software installed but not licensed)
That is the point of the LTU.
Just transfer the License off of the Workstation at the Office and then into the Laptop.
The only thing that needs to be correct is both are registered with the same Serial Number I do believe.
