Autocad LT 2014 installation on Laptop

799 Views, 5 Replies

Hello,

 

I was told when purchasing Autocad LT 2014 that I can install the software on my pc and then on my laptop.  Please correct me if I am wrong about the licensing.  I am using both PC and laptop as the same user and I only use the desktop version when I am in office and plan to only use laptop version when I am working from home or in the field.  I successfully installed the software on my desktop (Win 7) but when I go to install and put in my Serial number on the laptop (Win 8) I get a red X next to it and I cannot proceed any further.  Can anyone assist in helping me resolve the issue?  Am I wrong about the licensing?

 

Thanks in advance,

DC

Hello Doug,

 

Welcome to the Forums!

 

You are absolutely correct on the licensing. You should be able to install it on your work computer, and then a secondary computer such as a laptop or a home computer, as long as they are for one user / not being used concurrently.

 

AutoCAD LT 2014 is also compatible with Windows 8. Can you take a second look at that start up screen and make sure it says "AutoCAD LT 2014", and not "2013" or just "AutoCAD?". Each version has a separate Serial Number.

 

If you have verified this and you are still having issues, please attach a screenshot (sensitive information excluded) to a reply of this post, as well as sending me a PM (Click my amanda.k User Name and then select "Send this user a PM") with your Serial Number information.

Hi,

Well I have the sam need - to use my AutocadLT on laptop when I am away from the office. And I know I am allowed to do it - it is in agreement. BUT,

would you be so kind to tell me how?  I enetered the serial, but The product needs registration. Do I have to transfer my licence over the net every time?

Thanks

Hi Saurus, welcome to the Autodesk Community.

 

Autodesk standalone products can be activated in two computers (as long as they are not used simultaneously, as mentioned on Amanda's post). To do this you'd simply need to start your second copy of AutoCAD LT and go through the activation process normally. Click on Activate, enter your serial number and product key, get a request code and then receive the activation code which you will use to activate the product. After that you should be able to use the product normally on your two computers.

 

Please accept as solution if my post fully resolves your issue, or reply with additional details if you need further assistance.
