How Will You Buy Autodesk Software Next Year?

By Anna Liza Montenegro | Subscription

Autodesk is gradually transitioning new software purchases for their products to subscription options only. In the first phase of this transition, new seats of most standalone perpetual software products like AutoCAD will generally be available only as a Desktop Subscription beginning February 1, 2016.

Throughout this transition period, Autodesk and Microsol Resources will work with customers to make this transition as smooth as possible, and will provide as much advance notice as possible so that customers can anticipate and plan for these changes.

This FAQ has been prepared to address any questions about this transition.
