    Notes:

    1. Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Vault must both be the same language on a given computer. English versions of these applications will run on any language operating system. Other language versions of these applications will run on operating systems of that same language.
    2. Autodesk Inventor LT 2016 is optimized to take advantage of the SSE2 extended instruction sets supported on Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64, and AMD Opteron processors. Inventor LT 2016 will not install on computers that do not support SSE2. Several utilities are available on the Internet that report CPUID including supported instructions sets.
    3. Autodesk recommends settings which allow Microsoft Windows to manage virtual memory as needed. There should always be at least twice as much free hard disk space as system memory (RAM).
    4. Please refer to the Autodesk published graphics card information.
    5. DVD-ROM drive is not required if installing from USB or software download.
    6. The multimedia learning components of the Inventor Help system, such as the UI Video Tour, Command Reference, and Show Me animations, require Adobe Flash Player 10. If it is not already installed, you can download it from the Adobe website.
    7. Provided by the Autodesk product installer.
  • Frequently asked questions

    Do I need to be connected to the Internet to use my software?

    You don’t need to be online to use your software. The software runs on your computer, not on the web. You do, however, need to connect to the Internet every 30 days, so we can keep your software up-to-date and verify that your subscription is still current. An Internet connection is needed initially to install and activate your software, and if you have cloud services, you need to be online to access cloud-based tools.

    Will you email a reminder before my subscription automatically renews?

    Yes, for annual and multi-year terms, we send an email reminder before your automatic renewal date. We do not send an email reminder for monthly renewals. 

    Can I cancel before the end of my subscription?

    You can cancel your subscription within 30 days of purchase for a full refund for any product or service purchased through our online store. You can also edit your renewal setting from your Autodesk account page, so your subscription does not automatically renew. You’ll have full access to your software and services until your subscription expires.
