11. You are now ready to download Autodesk software! Choose the program you want to download from -software/featured (scroll to the bottom of the page for a complete list of available titles). Select the version you want from the first drop-down box. It is recommended that you install the same version found in labs so that file transfers between those computers and your personal computer are seamless. Choose the operating system and the language from their respective drop-down menus. Once you have entered that information, a serial number and a product key will appear. Save both of these codes to a safe location! They are specific to your installation and no one else can access or recover them. When you have done that, click the "Download Now" button.
24. Enter the serial number and product key you wrote down or copied into a text file in Step 11, then click "Next". This combination is specific to this installation and cannot be reissued or transferred. If you misplace the serial number or product key, follow the steps outlined in the section below entitled "Managing Autodesk Software".
In addition, the software works with a black list. It collects entries that should be ignored during the scan. Of course, there is also a matching white list. It allows you to specify locations on the hard drive where the software has not yet searched for serial numbers. Both lists can be exported and also imported again, so that it is not a problem to transfer the specifications stored here to other computers. In addition, the tool offers a convenient search function that greatly simplifies the search for serial numbers of a specific program. Instead of digging through a long list of entries like MC Office, Adobe, Abelssoft and more, you simply type the program name into the search field and all matching serial numbers are spat out. 2b1af7f3a8
