Q - question

Activating AutoCAD license on-the-fly.

A - answer As you approach to the point when the trial (unactivated) AutoCAD license expires (30 days between the installation and activation of your license), it may be neccessary to activate your license "on the fly", inside a running AutoCAD session (not on the AutoCAD launch).

You can perform the activation with the ABOUT command. Click the buttons About the product > Activate and you'll get to the dialog "Autodesk Licensing", which is usually displayed on AutoCAD startup:

License activation (CZ version)

Click the Activate button in this dialog. If you have received your activation code over e-mail, pick the option I have the activation code from Autodesk and in the numbered fields 1-16 enter the hexadecimal activation code from the e-mail. It is not neccessary to manually type-in the individual fields - just copy/paste the code as a single string (some fields may remain blank). By finishing the activation you will get back to your running AutoCAD session.

License active (CZ version)
