“HOW TO” install your 2011 software

FIRST: OBTAINING YOUR SOFTWARE
Many of you will ask ... "Where is my software? We did not get the box in the mail!"

That is true. Autodesk is offering their 2011 software as a download from your subscription web site by default. You must go there to download your software or request a shipment of the software discs to you. If you do not know how to use your subscription web page, then you should attend one of the free webinars available from Avatech. Sign up at http://www.avatech.com/

You originally received a "welcome" email from Autodesk when you bought your subscription. The "contract manager" received this email containing your login and password information. If you need Autodesk to send you this welcome email again, just contact them at customercare.abc@autodesk.com. Be sure to include your subscription contract number or serial number in the email.

If you are NOT on subscription, then you are most likely on an older version of software that you would first have to upgrade to the current version. A new box of software is shipped to those that upgrade... and be smart... get on subscription we can show you it is better and more economical by far.
