Issue: You are getting a new computer or upgrading your operating system and need to make sure you can activate your Autodesk software on your new system.
Most Autodesk products (including those available for Mac) include a tool called the License Transfer Utility (LTU) that exports your license from your original computer to an Autodesk server. If you then upgrade your operating system or get a new computer and need to reinstall your software, you can import your license and reactivate your Autodesk software.

Notes About License Transfer
Here are a few notes about using the License Transfer Utility:
Utility Availability: The LTU is only available with our 2010 and later products. If you're using a 2009 or earlier version, use the
Portable License Utility instead.
Product Specific: You must use the LTU installed and located in the same directory where the software you wish to transfer resides. It is specific to that software and cannot be used for other products or versions.
Autodesk Account and Internet Connection Required: An Internet connection is required to use the LTU and you must have an Autodesk user ID and password, available from
https://registeronce.autodesk.com. If your system is down or if you otherwise can't access the Internet or the LTU, you'll need to
request licensing assistance.
No Transfer Limit: There is no limit to the number of times you can use the LTU to transfer your Autodesk license; however, please read your
Software License Agreement to make sure you are not exceeding the number of allowed installations for your Autodesk product.
