Can I convert my AutoDesk AutoCAD Mac license to a PC? If not, can I upgrade to a PC 2014 version and with my Mac license number?

you could go this route but this currently down right now

You can access most current + previous supported version Browser Download links (including the Design & Creation Suites) through Matt, Autodesks Virtual Assistant. http://autodesk.creativevirtual15.com/autodesk/bot.html?isJSEnabled=1&businessArea=Root.Front%20Desk&startContext=Root.FAQ.Front%20Desk#

That only works if I have a subscription. Unfortunately I do not. Any other ideas please?

you didn't read the whole thread

Confirming that you can in fact use your AutoCAD 2014 serial number and product key to Activate AutoCAD for Mac 2014.

 

I also wanted to point out that per the Autodesk Product Activation FAQ, 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. AKA you could in theory have AutoCAD installed on both your Mac and PC at the same time.

Thank you for the info but how would I download the 2013 PC version without accessing the subscription center?

I was finally able to locate my download center but only AutoCAD for Mac was available for download. How do I access the Windows version?

It being down right now explains a lot of my problem right now. I'll try again later.
