    Nope, but I know of a place you can get a 2019 licence.

    I think even if someone had one, it is technically illegal for them to sell it to you due to the language of the license agreement. I am not a lawyer, but you might want to check into that before you make the transaction, assuming you find someone.

    I bought a license from my old employer some (6 or 7?) years ago, but the process had to go thru a reseller, and Autodesk charged me quit a sum for the transaction. But at least back then, it was doable.

    BUT, if you have a current 2019 license, you might get lucky and get a 2012 license thru this link: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/custo...ersion-license

    Good luck.

    EDIT: Just found the old License Transfer Agreement, and could see that the transfer fee was ~1.100 USD

    You can maybe found a trial version for 30 days, but that will be all if you have the luck!

    It is probably possible like you did it. The court case i liked to was an e-bay sale with some dude just "finding" a bunch of old AutoCAD install media. Rules could be different outside of the US as well? Who knows? Like I said I am not a lawyer. That is why they make lots more money than I do, to decide important stuff like that.

    I have transferred licences in the past (AutoCAD Architecture). Technically you could do that when a company was bought and you transfer the licences to the new company. We kinda found a loophole back then and Autodesk agreed to it, I think it was just 100 euro for each licence to be transferred.

    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.
