    Copying Revit for "Non-Concurrent" use

    Does anyone have experience with copying a license as described below? We have a company laptop we would like to use for working at home without having to purchase another license and we're wondering what the process is to do so. thanks!

    For most Autodesk products, a copy can be installed on a second computer for “non-concurrent usage”, meaning the two copies cannot run at the same time. This allows for use of your Autodesk product on your work computer as well as your personal computer at home for example

    AFAIK it's always been OK to have a 2nd installation of at least AutoCAD and Revit on another computer. As long as the licenses are not being used at the same time you are OK. I've had a second install of Acad and Revit on my laptop for years for when I travel.
    I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!

      You should look into a home use license. I have done this in the past. Generally, they expire after a year.

      Be sure to check the terms of use.

        LOL! I guess that the Adesk Police are coming to get me. I have had a second copy of Adesk software installed on various laptops since 1988 and have yet to ever ask permission...

        edit: were there even laptops in 1988? Don't remember, but ever since I've had one I've had a second install on it.

          But since you are self-employed, don't you already use it at home?
          By "you" I was referring to the OP, not you, Dave. Poor wording on my part.
          I think you are safe, Dave. The concurrent use stipulation seems pretty straightforward. The first "laptop" came out in 1981.

            thanks to you both for the quick reply, I tried obtaining a license through AVA and it told me I didn't need one. Just using the same serial works :thumbsup:

              Right, billiam. The home use thing only applies to network licenses. The concurrent use stipulation only applies to stand-alone licenses which is what you were asking about. Sorry for the confusion. Dave answered your question.
