I want to request an activation code.

Do you have any questions about requesting an activation code? We have tried to answer all your questions as clearly as possible below. If your question is not answered below or you have any further questions, please get in touch with us.

What do I need?

  • Serial number
  • Product key
  • Request code

Where can I find my request code?

The request code is generated by the software during the installation and is linked to the hardware configuration of your PC. If anything changes in the configuration, i.e. the system is upgraded, the system is reset, etc., the software generates a new request code.

There are two ways to request an activation code:

You can request an activation code using the link above. This is an online request.

You will need to enter information in several fields. Once you have entered the information, you can send your request.

You will receive your activation code by post within 48 hours.

The disadvantage is that it does not include any information on how to activate your activation code once you've received it.

Click on the Autodesk English link below for instructions on how to install the activation code.

The link above opens instructions on how to request and activate the activation code online. If the fields have been correctly completed, you will receive your activation code straightaway.

The request procedure is as follows.

1. Go to and sign in using your Autodesk Account information. If you don't have an Autodesk Account, follow the onscreen prompts to create one.

The Product Registration & Activation website requires an Autodesk ID to sign in and not your email address. If you don't know your Autodesk ID, sign in using your email address and password to view your ID, which is listed under Profile/Security Settings.

Select your Operating System and enter your Serial Number. (Enter the serial number of the product for which the activation code is being requested. If you are an Autodesk software customer, you should select: “Activate a product purchased through a supplier”. If you are a reseller requesting the code for a customer, you should select: “Activate a product purchased by a customer”.)   Click Next.

2. Select the product that matches the serial number you entered. Click Next.

Select an existing account or enter new account information. This is the name and address you wish to use for your software registration. (Enter the account number (CSN number) or

complete all fields manually, (note: the information entered must precisely match that held by Autodesk, otherwise Autodesk will not “recognise” the account)). Click Next.


3. Verify your registration information and enter your Request Code where prompted. Click Next.

4. Print or save your registration information, especially your Activation Code. You'll enter this information when you activate your software manually from the Free Trial screen.
