Autodesk Multi-User (Network) Licensing
Attention Autodesk multi-user customers! Excellent news follow.
The 2019 license manager provides additional functionality which resolves two issues present in previous versions:
- In previous versions, if you have multiple versions of the same software installed (AutoCAD 2018 and 2016) and you launched both 2018 and 2016 simultaneously, 2 seats were consumed from the license manager. With 2019, only a single seat is consumed.
- In previous versions, one could run only up to 2 products within a Collection simultaneously (AutoCAD 2018 and Revit 2018 for example). If you attempted to run a 3rd product, say Navisworks, it would not run. This restriction has been lifted for 2019.
To reap the benefits:
- The 2019 license manager must be installed.
- A new 2019 LIC file must be obtained.
