Product/Version: AutoCAD Map 3D 2011
Home Use Serial Number: XXXXXXX
Product Key: XXXXX
Our installed HULA AutoCAD MAP 3D 2011 had another serial; YYYYYYY. Using this serial, AutoCAD has been installed on several home systems. We cannot reactivate this installation due to the new serialnumber. Please tell me how we can solve this problem without a complete new installation. And if a new installation is really required, where can we dowload AutoCAD MAP 3D 2011? Or is the serial we received usable for installing AutoCAD MAP 2013, It doesn't say so..
Based on the information you provided, I am guessing that you requested for a Home Use Serial Number with a 2011 version, thus we generated one for you. However, note that there is an expiration date for Home Use License and once expired changes would need to be made on our end.
As Home Use License Serial Number is a benefit for Subscription customer and you can download the software via Subscription Center.
If you still rather use the 2011 instead of the 2013 version, you can do that. You can both have the 2013 and the 2011 version activated. For activation inquiries and clarification, feel free to contact our Registration and Activation team.
Does this mean that we have to uninstall the current MAP2011 installation and reinstall it with a new serial?
Can we use the new serial for installing MAP 2013. Here a copy of the HULA message..
We have extended and amended your existing HULA license:
Product/Version: AutoCAD Map 3D 2011
Home Use Serial Number: 355-770XXXXX
Product Key: 129C1
There's no need to uninstall and re-install your AutoCAD Map 3D 2011. What needs to be done is to generate a new Activation for the Home Use License Serial Number as changes were made to its expiration date. Click to here request for an Activation Code.
What did you mean by this question, "Can we use the new serial for installing MAP 2013"? Did you mean, you want to use the extended HULA Serial Number for 2011in installing and activating the 2013 version? If so, no that would not work. The system will see that the Serial Number is a 2011 and that the installation file is a 2013 version.
If I seem to have misunderstood the question, feel free to reply with more details.
Is there one requestcode / activationcode for all current 2011 installations. I mean, when I look at the requestcode on my HOME PC and receive an activationcode, will that activationcode work for all HOME users?
As you've received one serial number with 30 seats, you will be able to install the 2011 product as a home use version with the same serial number for a total of 30 machine.
The activation should be automatic simply by entering the serial number and product key.
issue is that we have installed MAP 2011 two years ago, with another serial (355-xxxxxxxx). last year the license was reactivated, but now we get another serial. We cannot change the serial of an existing installation. We want to reactivate it again.
All this makes me think it is better to advice the users to unintall te current installation and reinstall with the new serial. But I don't really want that.
I've edited your reply to hide the serial number information.
The serial number you had from 2 years ago was set to expire on January 2013.
As you've requested some new home used licenses, the registration & activation team provides you the new one for 30 seats.
If the software gives you a "licensed expired" message, you can use the new serial you've received but you won't need to uninstall and re-install the software on each machine.
Where can we update the serial of an expired installation? We cannot do this in the product / license information (see attachement) because we cannot open AutoCAD MAP 2011.
