Rental licenses allow you to use Autodesk software for a specified period of time, with the option to renew. Rental licenses offer benefits similar to a perpetual license with Autodesk® Subscription, including basic support and, for most products, access to select Autodesk 360 cloud services. Other benefits include:
- Monthly or annual access—Flexibility to manage costs without an up-front license investment or long-term commitment.
- Scalable licensing—Easier license addition and removal, enabling you to scale up and down to manage project and staffing needs.
- Access to the latest tools—Stay current with the latest releases and product enhancements.
Perpetual licenses are ideal for individuals or small offices requiring only a few individuals to access and use Autodesk products. These licenses let you use your version of software for as long as you want, and do not require network connectivity to run.
Can I upgrade my current license of Autodesk software?
If you already have a legal installed version of Autodesk software and are interested in purchasing a license of a newer version, you may be eligible for an upgrade. To qualify for an upgrade to a 2014 version, you must be moving from a 2008 or more recent version.
Please note: Based on the Renewal Term you select below, you will receive a term license to use Autodesk software plus associated benefits. Under the Auto-Renewal Plan, your license will automatically renew for additional periods equal in length to your initial term, and you will be billed automatically at the start of each period, starting on the date that Digital River processes your order (see cart for details).
Rental licence FAQs (e.g., information about how it works, cancellation and benefits)
To avoid potential issues, ensure that the billing information (e.g., name and email address) submitted is that of the Contract Manager (the person who will manage users) as this person cannot be changed once the purchase is made.
