I try to use Eagle 8.0 but I am not able to launch the application.
When I click on eagle.exe the Sign in window appeared:
I enter my email and my password. I click on "SIGN IN" button and ....
Thank you for your help.
I am working on Win x64
I have exactly the same issue. Running on Windows 10 64bit (1604 update).
After entering password, eagle exits with the same error. Unfortunately I have not found a solution yet.
So for the time being I am staying on Eagle 7.7. Have been fortunate to download latest version before Autodesk decided to pull them of the face of Internet. :-( So much for supporting existing Eagle customers. :-(
You need to setup an Autodesk Account. You can setup your account by visiting accounts.autodesk.com. Once you have created an Autodesk account you will use that one to sign into EAGLE.
Please accept as solution if my post fully resolves or you issue, or reply with additional details if the problem persists
Thank you for the link. Just found links, tha actually work, in another post here. :-)
Unfortunately the issue with v8 is what interests me more. I have Autodesk account. I am logged in already on the webpages, my email is verified. Yet still I can't launch the new Eagle 8. Is Free edition working already? After reading some posts here I am under impression that it might be still "work in progress" said mildly. Not sure if I want to throw money down the Autodesk throat just for trying the new features.
Seems like we will be staying on 7 series with our perpetual license if there is not working solution. Old licenses just worked, not like this "new better model". Quite a disappointment.
Something is wrong then, if you have an Autodesk account it should just work. Did you recently create your account? It might take a few hours for everything to trickle through the system.
There are always a few kinks in new implementations, however what's really important is how quickly we resolve them. Once you are able to login, we would have to be down for 14 consecutive days to interrupt your work. That hasn't happened at autodesk since they changed over to licensing so you won't have to seriously worry about your work being interrupted.
I'll look into this.
It has been few hours now and I am still unable to run Eagle. A system that needs few hours to crunch login data? Maybe in the '70, but this is 2017 and i find that hard to believe. Few minutes in bad weather, but not hours.
You say I have not to worry about your servers being unreachable to refresh licensing data. Funny when you realize there must be a reliable path over half the planet to some server so I could work, literally. And right now I even would not be able to work in case I had to replace a computer and reinstall because of a hardware fault. The whole "always connected" concept does not quite fit when downtimes are not tolerable. This is exactly I was affraid would happen when acquisition by Autodesk was announced. And it happened despite affirmations that not much will change in licensing.
But back to my current issue. Here are steps to reproduce. I will try to reproduce on a virtual machine tomorrow (UTC+0100 here).
* download and run Win 64bit installer
* finish installation, but do not restart (I have been busy with something else)
* launch Eagle (forgot it requested restart, WHY?! on Earth it requires reboot of the whole system ...)
* within eagle proceed with creation of new autodesk account
* -> first appearance of error message about invalid license after finishing the registration
* reboot system (remembered about reboot)
* -> any subsequent attempt to log into eagle fails with error "ABORT: invalid license"
I am able to sign in with my autodesk account on the website.
Environment: Windows 10 64bit Enterprise (update 1607) EN with cs_CZ locale settings and cs_CZ MUI installed.
Since I was curious, if there is some simple issue with network or something I captured some https traffic with your servers. It all seems to be working, altouhg there a few commented out lines in returned pages looking like some debugging leftowers.
Here is excerpt from the communication of what seemed relevant:

If it can be of any help, I can send full unredacted trace privately.
Well ... when looking at communication dumps I said to myself "that can't be ...". It is!
I have found a workaround!
In my case the problem is caused by any non-latin characters in name or surname.
When I change my surname to contain "y" instead of "ý", it all suddenly starts to work.
YOU HAVE A BUG IN LICENCE VALIDATION CODE!
You might try beta testing next time ...
So if any of you are still having trouble to run Eagle, try to replace any national characters in your profile (name, surname) on autodesk website.
I can confirm this, I've been trying to start EAGLE the whole day. After reading the previous post I edited my profile removing accented letters and finally I was able to run it.
as mentioned in a different post, I have the same problem as Martin: abtaining a license with the autodesk account is not possible.
I created my autodesk account almost 12 hours ago. Things in the autodesk magic licenseing system should have settled now. But I still get the message, that the license is invalid.
Here I run eagle on linux OS.
I wish I could even get a login screen -- the .exe hangs after the initial window frame is drawn, chews up a bunch of CPU time for a few moments and then it becomes unresponsive. 7.7 works fine. Windows 10. I even rebooted at one point, no change.
Just wanted to add my voice to this issue - as of today (24 Jan 2017) I am unable to launch Eagle without changing my name in my Autodesk Profile from
This workaround is fine but it would be great to have it addressed.
In my case (as solved in a different thread) the solution was to let Eagle install into its recommended directory, and not into C:\Program Files\EAGLE 8.0 as I had directed it to do.
As of today I am unable to access Eagle. I have been using it for weeks without problem and today the 'invalid subscription' error came up
My name does not contain any special characters.
The download page says i have access to the product.
I contacted Autodesk because I explored this morning the same Trouble.
First Eagle 8.0.0 showed up the Error (after worked for some days) ,
then uninstall Eagle 8.0.0 and install Eagle 8.0.2, but showed again the same Error.
Here is what hopefully will help you all too:
Answer from Autodesk Customer Support (09.03.2017):
In order to solve the activation issue with launching Eagle, may you please try to delete this registry key as following:
Launch the registry editor (REGEDIT) and delete the following key : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\EAGLE 8.0.0\subscription
Then try please to run the software again, disabling the antivirus.
I installed with antivirus on , (delete the named registry key) then disabled antivirus (only the Firewall) for first Start of Eagle ,
Login (with the Checkbox to remember Passowrd) and it worked.
Firewall/Antivirus activated again and Eagle is starting without problems.
I don't know if it was the registry key or the Firewall. But now it works.
Thanks to the Support - Problem solved within 4 hours.
We apologize of the inconvenience you have experienced. There were some communications issues with the server that were found and repaired in a timely manner. You should be able to execute EAGLE and login into your account as usual.
