View Full Version : one seat - two installations
5th Aug 2010, 08:04 pm
I own one seat of Acad2011 which is installed on my work station in the office. There are some occasions where I would like to work at home. Would Autodesk balk if I were to install Acad on my home computer as well? No one else would have access to the program, so it would not be used simultaneously on two different computers.

From the Autodesk EULA:

Been doing that exact same for a number of years and never heard "boo" from AutoDesk. Go for it.

Remember, that Subscription members have a different ELUA, I did not know about it until our reseller told me about it. It permits the subscription holder to install on a workstation and a remote workstation, but removes the requirement that the second station is owned by the company. I have a copy of it somewhere around here.
