Autodesk Licensing Update

Autodesk has recently announced the removal of the Concurrent Usage Limit from the Industry Collection. This usage limit prohibited users from having more than two collection programs running at the same time. For Example, if you opened Revit 2018, AutoCAD 2017, you could not also open Navisworks 2018. For multi-users (network license), this would pull two licenses instead of one. Also, if you borrowed a license, you would have to borrow a license for each product and each year.

Now Industry Collection users can use many different products and years concurrently.

For Multi-user (Network License), you will need to update your license file to 2019 and update the License Manager Utility (LMtools) to version This will allow uses to borrow ONE license for each of the products within the collection. The catch is that the Industry network license files MUST be upgraded to 2019 version before this change will occur. Once you unlock this feature it will work on all previous versions that Autodesk still supports.

By making this change, Autodesk has expressed their understanding of the increasing need to utilize multiple products within daily workflows and has made an effort to support this.
