I am currently running 2012 at work. In talking to our IT department, they have given me a serial number and a product key to use on a home license. What I am looking to do is download 2014 using these codes. Maybe I am looking in the wrong location on the Autodesk website, but in my first attempt, I found the product download section and when I tried inputting the info into the fields it wouldn't take them. Then I tried downloading the 30 day trial of the Inventor Suite for 2014. That downloaded and I saved the setup file, but when I went to run it, it gave me an error message that said the file was not a compatible 32bit system. I selected the 64 bit version. While I am not at home to give the exact message, I am going on memory to some degree. Can anyone instruct me as to how to get this downloaded or upgraded on my home PC?
Are you sure your home computer is a 64-bit OS? Odd that you would get that error otherwise.
Yes, I am sure it is 64 bit.
I am going to start from square one. Here is the opening page from Autodesk. If I have the serial number and the key code from work, where do I go to down load 2014 under my companies license?
I have never downloaded from this site before and considering I have struck out twice I need advice with this.
click on ask at the bottom>downloading & installation>software download links>i need to redownload my product>autodesk suites
I think you can download a 32 bit version to see if work.

Sorry I have not gotten back to you on this thread.
My IT department ended up getting me the 2013 discs for install. I ended up doing that version. I will try and make it a point to try what has been suggested.
Thanks for your input.
