LT 2012 LTU

We bought one standalone version of Autocad LT 2012. There are 3 users who need to use the program but don't work on the same time with it.

 

Can i use the LTU and install this version on 3 pc's and let the users transfer the license between them? It might be possible technically but is it allowed on licenseterms?

Yeah, you can attempt this but the LTU is not reliable. Eventually it will break and you will be left without a license.  You might consider upgrading to a full seat of AutoCAD and adding network activation to it.  That way they can all have AutoCAD installed and just share the single network license.  It's worth it.

It would be cheaper to buy (2) additional LT seats :smileyhappy:

Is LTU that buggy? I'll try if it works. When not w start thinking about more licenses

When the export fails i have to reactivate with autodesk?

No, I was exaggerating on the LTU.  It's actually much worse than my description.  And yes, when it fails, you will have to reactivate thru Autodesk.  Good luck!
