Home Use Licensing

With more of our customers working from home these days, here is a reminder of how to access Home Use Licences (HUL) for Autodesk, Civil Site Design and Stringer Topo.

Instructions for accessing licences from home

Perpetual Licence:

If you have an Autodesk perpetual single user license, you are allowed to install and authorise the software on two computers – one for the office, one for the home computer/laptop. If you have exceeded the number of authorisations, you will need to contact Autodesk to enable further authorisations. This will require the Contract Manager of the account,  registering a case with Autodesk via your manage.autodesk account.

Subscription Licence:

If you have an Autodesk subscription single user license, you are allowed to install the software on up to three computers and login to which ever computer you wish to use.

You can “check out” perpetual/subscription multi user licenses from the network. Here are the instructions from Autodesk on how to do this:

At the end of the “check out” period, the license will automatically be returned to the license pool on the server.

Please note we recommend that you do not borrow a license for longer than needed. In a worst case scenario, should a borrowed license on a laptop be lost/stolen/destroyed, then the license is not accessible until the return date.

If you have a Civil Site Design/Stringer Topo perpetual single user license and are on current software maintenance, you are entitled to a Home Use License. Customers who are designated “Subscription Manager” or “Subscription Co-ordinator” can visit the Civil Survey Solutions Customer Centre, and apply for a Home Use License which will be emailed to you. The Home Use License will be a Single User License, valid to your software maintenance renewal date.
