Change product key after upgrade to Building Design Suite

We have upgraded our Revit Architecture and Revit MEP suites to the Building Design Suites. We now have a different serial number and product key. I would like to change the product key for AutoCAD so we don't have to reinstall AutoCAD on all the computers. The serial number is easy to change but I don't know to change the product key.

AMFPV,

Hello. Sorry for the frustration. The more modern installers will not let you install with a random key, but will let you install with a corresponding key. That is, you can get through some installers using a suite key. Like using the AutoCAD installer with a Suite key that has Autocad in it. This will work just fine with network installations, but users with standalone installations will likely have activation issues as they would be trying to activate an incorrect product combo.

 

A manual change for a Product key would be a great request:
