I would like to activate my copy of AutoCAD 2012 but receive an activation error message.
If you are unable to activate your standalone license by clicking on ‘Activate’ after opening AutoCAD then click on ‘Try’. When the program has opened type ABOUT in the AutoCAD command line, then click on Product Information then click the Activate button.
Note As a Subscription customer you can only activate 3 previous versions back, so AutoCAD 2012 can be activated up until AutoCAD 2016 becomes available to the market. Once 2016 goes live, Autodesk will not activate 2012 products.
