Autocad LT 2014 uninstall and reinstall on new computer.

I want to uninstall Autocad LT 2014 from a DT and reinstall it on a new DT. What do I have to do? Is it enough to uninstall using the Windows control panel, or are ther extra steps? how do I ensure that the licence is tied to the new DT? 

Hello niall.shanahan!

 

Welcome to the forums!

 

To make sure the license is tied to the new desktop, you will need to use the License Transfer Utility to move the license from the old computer to the new one before uninstalling it. The instructions for the License Transfer Utility (LTU) can be found here.

 

 

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks Patricia.

So, basically export the licence via the instructions you provided, install the software to the new computer from disc and finish the process by importing the licence to the new DT. Sounds simple.

Can I use this technique to use LT 2014 on my desktop and my laptop, ie use LTU to switch between the two, or is it limited in the number of uses?

Hi Jon!

 

Correct that there is not a limit on LTU uses, however, I also would like to point out that  most license types (excluding educational) allow the software to be installed and activated on 2 separate machines, as long as you are the sole user and the 2 aren't used concurrently. Check out the the Autodesk Product Activation FAQ for more info.

Hi

 

I'm trying to transfer an Autocad LT licence but I get the error shown in the attached image.

 

It says the serial number I entered is invalid, but I didn't enter it - I assume it's picked it up from the registry. It didn't ask me to sign in and until making this post I didn't have an autodesk ID. The S/N and key match those on the box are correct. Can anyone help?!

 

Thanks
