    I think, in Europe you are allowed to transfer (read sell) your licence these days, but it does need to go trough Autodesk for the registration of course.

    Still have a copy of the 2012 media sitting here (iso file), but as I do not have a license for that, not going to install that to give it a try.
    Pretty sure a 2012 activation will not go through anymore.
    Alright. So if I find a seller, I need to inform Autodesk?

    We went trough our re-seller back then and they took care of it.
    We had to fill in a form where both the seller and the buyer filled in some stuff and signed it. Pretty sure the form Munkholm posted is the one.

    A quick google got me here:
    https://knowledge.autodesk.com/custo...rship-licenses

    Has a few steps you need to take and I'm pretty sure that's the only legal way to do it.

    Since you have a subscription you could contact Autodesk Support to be able to access 2012...problem is I doubt they have access to 2012 disks/installs so you would have to find those, and all the updates to go with.

    Why not just update the 2012 project to 2016? No point in keeping it in 2012 if you don't have the program available anymore.

    Already contacted them. They said they don't have it. The client wants it to be in 2012 as the project has been going on for a very long time, the BIM models are in 2012, and they are unwilling to upgrade.

    so...the real question is: Why Revit 2012? Just upgrade it to something newer.

    OH it will be a pain in the butt to work in 2012 when you are used to 2019.
    Good luck with that if you ever get it to work.

    Tell me about it!! Already had a go with the trial. So many issues that have been resolved in the later versions....

    Again good luck, I do not envy you my friend, hang in there !

    Working as my own boss I can refuse to work on such old projects or at least upgrade them to something sensible.
    I just don't have any software older then 2016 if that's not OK, then go find somebody else to work on your ancient project (and even 2016 is a pain in the butt)
