I installed the trial Autocad LT 2013 with no problem. After about ten days, I purchased LT from Amazon. When I start the trial, the 'Your Autodesk Trial' window comes up just fine. I click the 'ENTER SERIAL NUMBER' and I get the choice of either 'BACK' or 'CONTINUE'. Clicking 'CONTINUE' does nothing. All I can do is either go 'BACK' or chose 'BUY NOW'.
Do I have to uninstall the trial and reinstall with my purchased disk, or is there someway to enter my new s/n?
BTW, your spell checker for this post doesn't recognize Autocad and wants to replace it with Autocrat. Might want to fix that.........
You shouldn't need to uninstall your trial and install the newly purchased product.
Could you please send us screenshots of the activation screens you are seeing? The initial one and then the one where you enter the serial number would be very helpful.
autodesk1.jpg is the inital screen. If I click 'ENTER SERIAL NUMBER', autodesk2.jpg is displayed. Clicking "CONTINUE' only makes the roll-over 'submit-key-btn' show up. If I click 'Buy now' I go to the purchase page, but as I mentioned, I purchased already from Amazon. So basically I only can go 'BACK' and click 'CONTINUE TRIAL'.
Is there a way to enter the s/n once LT is up and running?
In this case what you can try is disabling firewall and anti-virus prorgams before clicking on continue as they may be blocking your access to our online activation system. If that fails, the easiest solution would be to uninstall and re-install the program choosing "Activate" instead of "Trial" on your first initialization.
