How to Set-Up & Maintain your Autodesk Software?

Subscribed to Autodesk


You have subscribed to Autodesk software on a term based contract.
This was previously known as Pay-As-You-Go or Desktop Subscription.

Refer to Autodesk subscriber’s ‘How To’ below

You are an Autodesk subscriber when you subscribe to Autodesk software. This works on a pay-as-you-go model and has a much lower up-front cost. Manage and maintain all administrative functions regarding your users, license renewals, software downloads, installation, activation & registration of licenses by creating an Autodesk Account. We have provided you with Step-by-Step guides below!

Maintain Current Software

let’s keep it up to date and maintain your investment.

Refer to ‘Maintenance plan ‘How To’ below

You currently own perpetual rights to your Autodesk software. Although Autodesk is transitioning to a subscription based model (pay-as-you-go), you can maintain and update your software by renewing your maintenance plan, previously known as Maintenance Subscription. The maintenance plan is on a term based contract that offers you annual or multi-year terms.
