To Uninstall/Reinstall? That Is The Question!


August 11, 2017 | IT Services, All

Most of us are well aware of the licensing change that is going on with Autodesk software.  The move to subscription software from traditional perpetual licenses has left some users questioning. . .

Do I need to uninstall my current software and reinstall it with my subscription serial number for me to remain compliant?

This is the answer (in most cases):

  1. If the switch to subscription occurred prior to your renewal date, then you don’t need to uninstall and reinstall your software.
  2. If the switch to subscription occurred after your renewal date, then you need to uninstall and reinstall.

The above answers are most cases.  To read about other situations please read the Autodesk Knowledge Base document:  When is software uninstall/reinstall required after a subscription change?

There is a very informative PDF attached at the end of the document, but I’ve downloaded it and attached here for you:  steps after change to subscription.pdf
