Revit Architecture Services & Support - How to understand and manage your Autodesk licenses (video)

I hate to say this, but wasn't licensing simpler when it was just AutoCAD you had to worry about? I hope you don't spend more time installing and uninstalling software than you do actually using it. I can't imagine what a firm with 300 employees would do to get the software working on all of their machines. I guess that's one of the benefits of using a cloud based solution. You never have to worry about updates and installation issues.

Maybe we should just go back to pencil and paper. Hmmm. Should we use the #3, #5, #7 or #9 pencil? What color lead should we use? Mylar or Vellum? No, maybe bumwad paper? 8 1/2 by 11 or 24 by 36? Regular letters or cursive? Scroll or parchment? Wait. Even pencil and paper was complicated.

You want an overview of network licenses, unique licensing behaviors and methods for managing your licenses. Topics include: what’s in a license; cascading and package licenses; adding and merging license files; managing license borrowing; and controlling your license usage using an Options file.

Note: Information on these and other topics can also be found in the Autodesk Network Licensing Guide.


Note: This video is 29 minutes in length and was created for training purposes. The concepts described in this video tutorial apply to all network versions of Autodesk products.
