    Question Recovering the portable license from a crashed computer?

    One of the people in our office was using an old 2006 license when our section upgraded to 2009. Unfortunately her motherboard crashed yesterday and now we can't figure out how to recover that license so she can continue using 2006 on her new computer.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Don't worry about it. Just install on the new machine, and call your reseller for a new activation code.

    If her motherboard stopped working, the operating system could still be intact on the hard drive. In that case, you could plug the hard drive into a different computer, boot from it, and AutoCAD would still be installed.
