Q - question

Navisworks 2016 requires login to an Autodesk account after launch.

A - answer Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2016 can be licensed in two ways. You can run it as Navisworks with a classic desktop licensing, or as Navisworks which is a part of BIM 360. BIM 360 is a cloud product, so it requires online login using your Autodesk ID.
