I have an old copy of autocad lt 2005 on my pc. I recently upgraded, on my mac and went to autocad lt 2013. I love it. I noticed in the app store that I can redownload and put it on another computer that I own. So I'd like it on my pc and my mac.
Thing is, my pc is a desktop and my laptop is a mac. I own the lt 2013 for mac and the the older version in the pc. both are full versions.
How/Can I get a copy for my pc? Or would I have to purchase it all over again. My license for the mac version appears to allow for more than one install, and I think it even says that. But for my permanent pc I would need the windows version.
If I understand you correctly, you purchased AutoCAD LT 2013 and you have already installed and activated it on your MAC and now you want to install and activate a second copy to your Windows PC, right?
If so, indeed you can install and activate a second copy of AutoCAD LT on a MAC or Windows environment. Do click on the link for more details on Windows and Mac Cross-Platform Licensing.
Thanks, that is what I was looking for. But I have another question. It refers to the serial number that came with the software. Where do I get that from if it was purchased from the Mac App Store?
Well, that makes me unhappy. I wish this was claused somewhere when buying it. Since I use the mac more than the pc, I should be okay... but still not happy.
The app store is awesome and very convenient for loading and updating apps. But wish I had known about this licensing limitation with the autodesk product. Had I known I would have purchased it the other way around (windows version with cross over support).
I still own a pc version, but it's just an older one.
