Register the Product

It is very important that the registration data (for example, your company name and contact information) you supply when registering and activating your products is consistent across all Autodesk products that you install. If you enter this data incorrectly or inconsistently, you can run into activation problems.

The way products are registered depends upon the type of license you selected while creating the deployment. In order to receive an activation code, your product must be registered.

To register a network licensed deployment

  1. On the Start menu (Windows), click All Programs (or Programs) Autodesk Network License Manager AutoCAD 2008 Network License Activation Utility.
  2. On the Obtain a Network License page, review how this utility works and the requirements for using it, and then click Next.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration and activation.

To register a multi-seat stand-alone licensed deployment

  1. On the Deployment Complete page, click Register Products Online.

    The Register Today page is displayed. You complete Register Today at this point so that all users have the same default registration information.

  2. In the Register Today wizard, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration.
NoteThis process only registers the product. If users are connected to the Internet, activation will occur automatically when the product is started.
