Electronic Software License Delivery

Software has changed a lot in the past years. It used to be that you would purchase a box with a disc inside that you would use to download the software and typically a manual.

Nowadays many software companies like Autodesk are no longer sending the discs and are instead providing electronic delivery options on their products to send you the product faster and to help eliminate shipping box waste.

Whether purchasing a new license or getting the newer versions through your Autodesk subscription contract, your automatic delivery method will be via Electronic License Delivery.

If you are currently active on your Autodesk subscription, Autodesk will notify you when a new release is out via a notification email. The notification will be sent when you have upgrades or products available for download.  Please keep this email for your records as it will contain:

  1. Serial Number(s)
  2. Links to access the Software Media
  3. A consolidated license certificate as an PDF attachment

Still need physical media?

You can purchase physical media (delivered via a default method of USB or DVD) if you would prefer a physical media. You can find instructions on requesting the download on How to request product media on Autodesk account if you have an active subscription. You can also  contact your Microsol Resources Account Executive directly or email us at info@microsolresources.com.
