can't activate autocad 2014(student version)

I downloaded autocad 2014, and for some reason I can't activate it.

An error appears trying to find the license.

It took me so long to download this huge program file and now I can't even open it. Very frustrating....

During what exact step/phase of installation did the error occur?
CDan you post a screenshot of the error message?

Welcome to the community. 

 

Many people are experiencing this issue.  You might check this KB about the 2014 activation crash and see if it applies to your issue.

It happens while checking the license. A box appears that says " Please wait while your license is being verified." Then another box appears saying that the program has to be stopped due to a probem.

Hello Geena,

 

Some users have had success turning off their antivirus software to get past the checking license freeze / crash. Can you please give that a shot and let us know how it goes?

I tried turning off antivirus software, and I still can't get the problem solved. Seems like it is something else...

Did you find a solution yet?

I'm experiencing the exact same problem only with Revit 2014.

I just installed a 30-day trial version of Revit 2014, however this changed nothing, the program still crashes when launched even though it isn't trying to verify the license no more. So could it be that the problem isn't the license?

Hello! I am facing this problem as well. Downloaded AutoCad 2014 (student version) and cannot put in my license numbers, since it stays like this (as in the picture above) and doesn't change. Is there any other way to work out license?
