Product:Autodesk AutoCAD 2017
Serial Number:xxx-xxxxxxxx

Please make my 3 year student trial activated.

Hello @ichoiZRWSN,

 

It seems you tried to download and install your student product and it states you have a 30-day trial and you would like to change this information to show that you have a student license that lasts 3yrs. If this is correct you need to remove the licensing information on your system. 

 

  1. At the top-right of the screen select the drop-down triangle next to the User Name to display a drop-down

list .

  1. Click “Manage License...” to open the License Manager screen.
  2. Locate the product and click “Change license type” next to the product, it will close. 
  3. Launch the product on the Let’s Get Started screen select the appropriate license type and follow the prompts.

 

If the product is not accessible:

  1. Close your Autodesk program.
  2. Delete the three (3) files prefixed with Adskflex  from the following folder:
    C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\  
    Note: The above files are Hidden files. You may need to enable Show Hidden Files in Folder options.
  3. Locate the following folder:
    C:\User\username\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ADUT
  4. Rename this folder to: ADUT2
  5. Browse to the following folder:
    C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\CLM\LGS\<product key>_<product version>
  6. In this folder, do one of the following:
  • Open the LGS.Data file, change value to _STANDALONE, and save the file.
    or
  • Delete the contents of the folder.

 

When you launch your Autodesk software, you will be prompted to sign in or (if you have a Serial Number please use it)

Welcome to the community...

 

Although the forums caught it..  Never and I mean never share your personal information here such as your serial #.  This is a world wide public user forum.

 

Next thing is...  Its a peer to peer network where users are helping other users.  We don't activate license..  That comes from Autodesk..
