I like my Inventor 11 and would like to continue using it. How do I re-instate the license?
Below is the error window I get.
Valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager. .... If you are still unable to access a license, contact your system admin. Error [1.5.-97]
I'm a Standalone single user.
Sounds like you installed it as a network version. You will need to reinstall as stand-alone. If your license is still valid, then you can activate it.
The software is over 7 years old, as it was on the computer I bought used,
taught myself, and have loved it since the first 3-D square I made.
What are the options for a Windows 7 Dell system as a stand alone install?
this violates the autodesk license agreement
you can't buy used autodesk software
if you are not the original owner you can not use this license
your only option is to buy a new license which is 2014
