When upgrading your Autodesk product to the most recent version, you'll need to go through the download, installation and activation process using your new serial number and product key. Here's a complete step-by-step guide to get your new products up and running from Autodesk Account.
2. Download your Product Upgrade
Click on the Accounts tab and then click on the Download Products button at the bottom of the Products and Services list to access the download page. Not all download methods may be available for every product. Here's a summary of the three software download methods:
Download Now—Download Now is assisted by Autodesk Download Manager (DLM), which is recommended for most users, as it provides faster downloads, a streamlined user experience, and useful controls to pause and resume the download if required.
Install Now—With Install Now, you select only the products and components you want, saving considerable download time. The Autodesk installer starts directly from the Web, without having to wait for all files to download.
Browser Download—Browser Download is recommended only for customers who cannot, or prefer not to, have file download utilities installed on their computer. This method is slower and less reliable, as files are downloaded and extracted separately in 4 GB segments.

Note about Product Versions: Product versions are independent of one another and are not "add-ons" to previous releases. You'll need to download and install the full new product version.
