The License Transfer Utility transfers a product license online from one computer to another, and ensures that the product works only on the computer that contains the license. The License Transfer Utility is a custom stand-alone installation option. During installation, a shortcut is created. A shortcut is installed once per product, per workstation.
You may want to transfer a license to a computer temporarily (if you want to use an Autodesk product on your laptop, for example) or permanently (if the computer where you originally activated your Autodesk product is being replaced). You can leave the license on the secondary computer indefinitely, or you can move the license between computers as needed.
License transfers rely on the product’s serial number. Before an Autodesk product can be exported, it must be activated with the serial number and product key. During license import, a previously activated and exported license is imported to a product or product suite installed with the same serial number. The activation is transferred to the import computer, completing the license transfer.
