Hello!

 

Thanks for student opportunity to learn how to use your products.

 

I've registered using my student info but when I try to download Autocad 2013 for Mac the download crashes. I tried tried different browsers (Chrome, FF), OS (Mac, Win, Linux) and even Internet providers. Download still crashes. 

 

How can I download it?

 

Thanks.

I have had the same problem. The only option given is to do a browser download. The download gets about half way then finishes but does not fully complete. The disk image downloaded will not open. I have also tried downloading in multiple browsers.

Hi Benjamin,

 

A typical workaround for this sort of issue is to download the software on another computer and then transfer the .exe installer file over with an external hard drive, thumb drive, DVD etc...

 

As you're already here I can provide you with a 24hr timed direct download link which might resolve the problem (if it doesn't, please try the afore mentioned transfer method), of which I'll be sending you via Private Message.

I'd like to add to this.  The image "Browser Download" does nothing in either Safari or Firefox.  You can click on it a hundred times and nothing will ever happen.

 

Can you please provide an actual link for Macs since the 'Download Manager' and 'Install Now' are PC only solutions.

 

There is otherwise no way to start the download process.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Alex

Hi alexander and welcome to the forums.

 

Here's a direct download link for AutoCAD for Mac 2013:

AutoCAD for Mac 2013

 

Please, not that this link is temporary and will expire in 72 hours.

 

I've tested the Browser Download option using Firefox and it worked fine for me:

Best regards,

I have the same problem: Autocad 2013 for Mac "Browser Download" doesn't work in either Firefox or Safari. I've tried all the suggestions above, and I always get back to the download site which includes the "Browser Download" button that doesn't work. By now, I'd have a serial number and product key. But, that's very little use if I can't get the software. 

 

It is very surprising that a company like Autodesk can't get its act together in order to provide people with download links that actually link to downloads. I'm hoping that I will get a reply to this post, and that the reply is not as useless as the last post from Autodesk in this threat. Otherwise, it'll have to be Freecad for me...

 

That'd be a pity because I did have a good experience with Autocad when I used the program some years ago.
