Question: How do I get a home user license for my Autodesk Software?
Answer...Autodesk Subscription customers are permitted to use their Autodesk on both an office computer and a home PC too (but not at the same time of course).
For standalone licenses log into to your account and browse to the Contract Administrators page, once here click on the "request Home Use" link. You can then review home use documentation and once you are happy click continue and agree to this. You can then install the license on your home PC using the same serial number.
For a home user license from a network license the process is a little more complex due to the nature of a network licensing. For these you'll also need to complete home use license form and licensing details will then be sent to your profile e-mail address.
