    Default Portable License Tool - Same computer

    Hi Everyone,

    I have looked and searched through the site but I haven't found what I am looking for. We are reformatting 20 computers in the office in which all the licenses are standalone. So rather than try to re-authorize each license, I know I can transfer the license file to the server and back to the reformatted computer using the Portable License Utility.

    I tried it on my home computer; exported the licensee to a file using the PLU, and then tried to import it into the same computer after being reformatted. In the end the license became broken in which I had to contact Autodesk for another license.

    When doing this, what is the step by step procedure in order to make this work.

    Thanks in advance,

    PLU just doesn't work about 1/2 of the time for some reason - we gave up on it.

    Is your current licensing standalone, where each license has a different S/N, or MSSA (Multi-seat Stand Alone), where each license has the same S/N?

    If the latter, then you should be able to get a code automatically from Autodesk (using online activation...), otherwise, I would just get a new auth code from Autodesk for each license - and then consider moving to MSSA....
