Once you’ve installed your Autodesk software, you’ll need to activate the license. Autodesk currently has three license types available, they are:
In this post, we’ll discuss the Subscription or, Named User Activation process.
When you launch your product, for the first time, you’ll notice the initial activation dialog box, in this example, we’re using AutoCAD.
If your license is a Subscription license, you’ll use the sign-in option, which will prompt you for an Autodesk Account Username and Password.
It’s important to note that this type of license requires an internet connection for activation. Once activated, the machine will need to connect to the internet at least once every 30 days in order to maintain activation.
Here, you’ll enter the Username that is associated with your Autodesk Account. This is most often your company email address. Next, you’ll enter the password.
It is expected that at this point, the software coordinator for your company has set up the account, and provided access to your user profile to the product you’re trying to activate. If all is well, you should now be up and running with your product.
