I obtained a free, 14 day trial download 13 days ago. Liked the software so I ordered and received a DVD version. Loaded it successfully and it first removed the trial version previously loaded. When I click to open, it takes me to the trial version page which says I have one day left on my trial. I have not been asked to enter any info like a serial number. Not sure how the trial version could be coming up if it was removed during install. Any thoughts?
From the AutoCad Freestyle forum
normally you can activate the trial version without re-installing.
Do you activate or register button ?
if not you can enter the serial number in the program (help->about)
there is a post about how to do this (meant for netbook using Keyboard, should work for any pc)
