Upgrading from Subscription covered Standalone Licenses to Network Licenses

126 Views, 9 Replies

Hi All,

 

We have 4 standalone AutoCAD 2012 licenses covered with Subscription - expires in December, 2013. Today we want to move above mentioned licenses from Standalone license mode to Network licenses.

 

We know about Network activation fee option, but our reseller says that we can't purchase it because our licenses are covered by subscription. Is it right and what's the right solution for us?

you can't buy 2012 anymore you have to upgrade your 2013 licenses to a network license when you get your license file it will have a package statement in that will include 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 licenses

Hi Darren,

 

Your prompt response is highly appreciated!

 

I'd like to make a mutter crystal clear - I've already upgraded my initially purchased AutoCAD 2012 Standalone licenses to AutoCAD 2013 Standalone because I have active Subscription.

 

Now I want to move from Standalone licenses to Network licenses - and my question is - how can I make this?

 

Reseller says that due to Autodesk licensing rules I can't upgrade my existing subscription covered standalone licenses to network licenses paying Network License Activation Fee. Is it right or not?

So I can buy 4 (four) Network Activation Licenses for my standalone licenses (currently I have 4 SLM AutoCAD licenses) to change them to network licenses nevertheless I have or don't have subscription, right?

Thanks Darren,

 

I hope that I could buy AutoCAD Network License Activation pack tomorrow - because reseller refuses to sell it :smileyhappy: arguing that if I want to use network licenses I should again buy AutoCAD network licenses from scratch instead of adding AutoCAD Network License Activation Fees Option to my existing standalone licenses because I bought them with subscription.
