Previous Use License Request: Running software that is more than 3 versions back

If you own a network license, you can run the current version & 3 versions back. If you need an older version of your Autodesk product, you will need to request a Previous Use License. The instructions are noted here:

NOTE:  You can also use the solution above to request older standalone products as well.

When you append the older code to the to the current license file and you parse the license file, it will look like this:


There is no need to request the entire license file on the SAME date because AutoCAD 2009 is looking for the Feature Code:  57600ACD_2009_0F.


Because we would like you to stay current, the older licenses are typically generated for the duration of 1 year from date of request.

Hi, thanks for the informations.
But how can a Subscription customer ask for the code for software that is more than 3 versions back?

The standard request for Previous Use License can be used for this?

Or is there any alternative procedure?

Many Thanks

David Lau

Yes. That is correct. You would use the TS above to request a version that is not in the default range of the Subscription. i.e. 2014-2011 [Current version + 3 years back]
