Owners of Autodesk 2014 products and older may have recently received the following email:
‘Your Autodesk software is reaching end of activation
Beginning July 1, 2022, Autodesk will no longer support license activation for versions 2011 to 2014, and we ask that you upgrade to a supported version. You can continue to use your product if you already have it installed, but we will no longer provide support, including re-activation, for these versions. (…)’
This message is misleading and is part of Autodesk’s efforts to make perpetual licenses obsolete and lure as many people as possible to switching to subscription-based software.
Let us make it clear: your software won’t be deactivated! While it’s true that since July 1st, 2022, you are not able to activate newly installed Autodesk 2011-2014 products online (in other words, by putting the serial number and the product key into the activation window), you can still activate your product by performing offline activation. Follow the instructions on the linked Autodesk page to receive your activation code.
Do you own perpetual Autodesk products you no longer need, or that will soon become redundant to you? Sell them to us!
