Re: STUDENTS - Serial Number or Product Key Issues

02-22-2013 09:30 PM in reply to: philip.s

The problem with linux appears to me to be that the activation program wont generate the machine specific request code. Linux is however supported for commercial licenses. (How else could anyone possibly install it on linux) Therefore if i input a valid commercial serial number a code should be generated. Does this mean the activation program is discriminating against student serials or is it a more serious issue. (i don't have a commercial key to test this with)

 

And why isn't linux a supported os for the education community. Isn't this about students not being able to afford a commercial license. What makes you think they can afford a windows or mac operating system?

 

Just my thoughts on the situation,

Colin

Hi

 

Im getting the same problem as Daniel: 

 

"I'm getting the "Error assigning serial number to product: This is an operation implementation generated fault" message when I try to download 3ds Max"

 

Just wondering is there a fix?

Hi Colin,

 

Confirming that a few of our products are compatible with Linux, specifically with commercial licenses, however the software is delivered / downloaded differently for Linux products (.tgz vs .exe or .dmg). With that being said, you would need a combination of a valid commercial license + the appropriate installer in order to successfully install and activate a supported title on a Linux OS.

 

I know that's not what you wanted to hear and I will definitely make sure to pass your feedback onto the appropriate parties.

Hi Robert,

 

Can you please specify what product you're trying to download? The typical workaround on this one is to simply create a new account using a different email address, however this always doesn't resolve the issue and additional tweaks are needed on our end.

Hi Robert,

 

Is the system highlighting a specific issue or error with your registration? Another workaround would be to register in the Autodesk Students Facebook page.
