Use your Autodesk Software at Home or While on Field

If you are an Autodesk subscriber or have perpetual license(s) on active Autodesk maintenance plan(s), you have the ability to install your Autodesk software on a secondary workstation such as a laptop or home office computer. To see an eligible product list click here.

For Autodesk software with single-user access type the assigned end user can simply access Autodesk Account with unique user login information and download the software using product serial number, product key and download link provided to a home machine or laptop. Per Autodesk policy, only one instance of the software can be active at any one time.

Additional steps are required if you have Autodesk software with multi-user access type. The contract administrator, Contract Manager or Software Coordinator(s),  can either check out a license from the network license server or request a companion single-user serial number be created by making the request within Autodesk Account. If you are an end user, you will need to contact the administrator to fulfill this request. Administrators can follow the steps below to request a companion serial number be created within Autodesk Account.

If you are a Contract Manager or Software Coordinator(s), here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Sign in to your Autodesk Account at https://accounts.autodesk.com/.
  2. Click on the Management tab at the top of the page.
  3. Under Products & Services select the product and click Get home use license under More actions.
  4. Click the Request a separate license link in the Multi-user column to open the request form.
  5. Enter the requested information and click the Send Request button:
    • Version: Enter the version year for the software.
    • Quantity: Enter the number of licenses you need that you have available.
    • Contact Information: Enter an email address and phone number so Autodesk can provide the license file and contact you if more information is needed.

Note:  While in most cases the turnaround time is much sooner, please allow up to 5 business days to process your request and receive an email from Autodesk with serial number (s).

Are you still having trouble? Call us at 888-768-7568!

Using the Install Now Method for Autodesk Account

The Install Now method automates the process of downloading, extracting and installing Autodesk software on a single computer.

Why should I use Install Now?

Download and install times are reduced as the process decompresses product files while the download is in progress. For Subscription customers, Install Now automatically applies the assigned Serial Number and activates your software.

  • Availability and Browser Compatibility: Install Now may not be available for all products and operating systems. If this download method is not offered when you sign in to your Autodesk Account, please use an alternate download method. If you encounter any errors with functionality or connectivity, please try using another Web browser or download method.
  • Network Installation: Files downloaded using the Install Now process can not be used for additional installations on other computers. If you need to install on a network or create a deployment, download your software using Download Now or Browser Download.
  • Component Installation Failure: Make sure you completely uninstall all previous versions before attempting to install a new version. See How to manually uninstall the product using Microsoft Fix it. If you receive a message that some software components did not install, this is most likely due to software conflicts on your computer and not because the components did not download.
