If you reinstall your operating system on the computer where your Autodesk license resides, the license might fail. You will not be able to use your product. To resolve a license error in this case, you must reactivate your product. See Activation.
To prevent a license error when you reinstall an operating system
- Make a backup copy of the following folder:
- Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher/FLEXnet
- Reinstall the operating system and reinstall the Autodesk product.
- Paste the license folder to the same location from which you originally copied the folder in step 1.
You can now run your Autodesk product.
