AutoCAD 2012 + Revit Architecture 2012 will use 2 licenses with a Building Design Suite 2013 license
Parallels + Fusion + Boot camp + Autodesk Products

Revit 2013 License Transfer Utility [LTU] will not start

If you install Revit 2013 as a Standalone version.  You can't run License Transfer Utility [LTU] to transfer the license back to Autodesk.  It is unresponsive and has no 'error' messages.

Revit-LTU-Start

The solution is to edit the License Transfer Utility Shortcut.

INCORRECT:

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\AdLM\R5\LTU.exe" 829E1 2013.0.0.F

CORRECT

StandAlone Command Parameters
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\AdLM\R5\LTU.exe" 829E1 2013.0.0.F
 -d SA -l en-US

MultiSeat StandAlone Command Parameters
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\AdLM\R5\LTU.exe" 829E1 2013.0.0.F -d MSSA -l en-US


I have included a video of the workflow as well.

I got this creating a Stand Alone Admin Image from AutoCAD 2013 DVD x64 source media as well.

That time it got it closer, but no cigar.

INCORRECT: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\ADLM\R5\LTU.exe" 001E1 2013.0.0.F - -d -l en-US

CORRECTED: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\ADLM\R5\LTU.exe" 001E1 2013.0.0.F - -d MSSA -l en-US

I don't know what the -d and -l flags are for but I'm assuming "MSSA" = Multi Seat Stand Alone.
