Hi, no I cannot download the trial version either. I could only get the US trial version to download but need the Australian license. Any other suggestions? I have enabled cookies, turned off firewalls and upgraded to Mozilla. Still nothing

Hi Kerryn - the software is actually the same / there is no difference between the trial and commercial versions or US and Australia for that matter. You mentioned that you were able to download the US trial version. Were you able to install it and or did you then run into an activation issue?

Hi, the US version is installed and working fine. I just noticed in the first part it says that trial is to be used by people in canada and us only. I am in australia and have purchased an Australian copy that won't download. I don't want to get audited and was hoping that the Australian version that I paid for would just work. I tried disabling all the firewalls. The computer is brand new, could there be default settings blocking it perhaps?

Hi nicholls87:


I have tried contacting you on the phone number we have on record but there was no answer. Smiley Happy


First of all, my apologies for the inconvenience. If the link included in the confirmation email is not working, one of the alternative for you is to download AutoCAD LT for MAC from our online Store download page. Make sure that the requested information  (order number/password or  email address/5 digits of your credit card) is correctly entered.


Another one is to use this link I have generated for you. Please note that it is valid only for 3 days.


AutoCAD LT 2013 for MAC


Since ythe product was ordered on-line and there's no media included, I would suggest that you save a copy of the software in a thumbdrive or burn it on CD/DVD.


Now, with regard to downloading the trial version, what's important is the serial number you put in to activate it. As long as it is to be used and has been correctly registered to the country you purchased it from, you shouldn't worry about getting audited. 


I hope this clarifies.


Let me know if you have any further questions.


Best Regards,


Arlin Bibat

Hi jlaburch,


Welcome to our forums.


Sorry about the inconvenience. Please try to download AutoCAD LT 2013 for Mac with the below temporary link:




Please note that this link will be valid for the next 72 hours only. Use the serial number and product key you received by e-mail to activate the product.
