When upgrading your Autodesk product to the most recent version, you'll need to go through the entire download, installation and activation process using your new serial number and product key.
For Subscription Customers, you can do this directly from within your Subscription Center account.
Note: 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.
Below you'll find a complete step-by-step guide to get your new products up and running.
2. Download your Product Upgrade
Next, you'll need to download your new product software from Subscription Center.
*Important* - All 2014 AutoCAD products and verticals have been renamed in conjunction with our new company branding to include “Autodesk” in their titles. When downloading from products from Subscription Center, there will be 2 separate entries for your AutoCAD entitlements. The previous, containing 2013 and previous versions (ex. AutoCAD), and the new product name encompassing the 2014 release and previous versions (ex. Autodesk AutoCAD).
You can also request product media for the newest version from Subscription Center.
