as a VAD we were always able to install a VAD license of a product as a standalone. . For the 2012 products I could generate a request code and send this to Autodesk and they would generate a activation code. Did something change in between 2012 en 2013
Usually this is uncommon. To get a stand-alone activation for a network seat, you have to request a special activation for this under Subscription. It is not automatic.
I was told that with our VAD license we always had to contact emea and we couldn't use the online activation anyways
