Autodesk & any resellers have stopped selling 2007 AutoCAD for decades. If you purchased that from a 3rd party, you lost your $$$. Even if you had purchase 2007 license directly from Autodesk many years ago, Autodesk no longer activates AutoCAD versions that old.

Whut?,  even with a valid original license if i still using my autocad 2007 without a request code from autodesk, that means i am breaking the law?

 

so that means i dont have a valid legal autocad software anymore, to make profit?

 

please be clear if im breaking the law to find another software to replace autocad.

 

thanks.

 

p.d. process of activation offline doesnt work anymore to?

Again, if you purchased a long time ago AutotCAD 2007 from an authorized Autodesk reseller, you successfully activated it back then and continue to use it even now then you're good. But if you recently purchased it from a third party, then you're violating the software license. Only Autodesk can sell their software. Even when it comes to license transfers, this requires application directly to Autodesk for their approval.

He's right.

Still using an activated program you bought a license is not a problem,

but reinstall won't work without Autodesks activation code..Except: Where do you live?

i got it, i got a refund for the 2007 license, and i also have an original license from an official autodesk reseller, wich i cant activate anymore, i did my homework and i read this:

https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/installation-licensing/can-t-activate-autocad-lt-2009-on-new-computer...

Yeah, its an old software but still autodesk is building a paywall here. does anybody know what a paywall is in this forum?

And its Sad, we invested a lot of time and effort to get legal licenses and autocad/inventor certifications, now i am a autocad/inventor certified professional with out the software wich i am expert, LOL.

i know autodesk dont care about the opinion of their users, but, i you ask me again, autodesk is sending the messege that its a risky move to invest in autocad and inventor, forget about software, the big hit is in the certifications.

I realize know why nobody what inventor as 3D CAD.

With the License Transfer Utility, you can export the license from the old pc to a file and import it into the new machine.
