Changing PC that Autocad is installed on

Please could you advise how we change the PC that AutoCad is installed on.

 

 

Hello @aaron,

 

I would like to add to this post in case someone else visits this post. You can simply install the software on the new PC you wish to use and activate normally. 

 

1. Locate & Use a Browser Download Method from Autodesk Account 

 

2. Activation Options 

  • Subscription software is primarily activated when a named user signs in to verify the license. Although a serial number and product key may be required, this information is often entered automatically, depending on your download and installation method.
  • Perpetual license software is activated by entering a serial number and product key and licensing it to run on a specific computer.  You can activate this type of license automatically, or manually by using the Digital Concierge to get your Autodesk activation code.
  • Education Software requires account creation on the Educational Community (Institutions should check their options)

 

Thank you for posting.
