Are you having issues with the new AutoCAD 2017 License Manager—or just like knowing where to find troubleshooting information if you need it?

The new License Manager is designed to make managing your software licenses easier and improve the way you set up and change trial, stand-alone, and network licenses, and more. Which, for the vast majority of installs, it does.
