Build on the Update is

Autodesk Licensing Service March Update

This is a cumulative update and contains all changes from the updates previously released. As a best practice, it is recommended to always apply the latest available update for Autodesk Licensing Service before launching the products for improved reliability and performance.

Important Notes:

  • If facing an Autodesk Product installation failure due to licensing, we recommend installing the latest licensing update before the product. Autodesk Licensing Service Update is a full installer and does not require the base version to be installed in advance.
  • While creating deployment image, the Licensing Service Installer within the Autodesk Product installation files can be replaced with the latest update prior to creating the deployment package/image


  • All single-user subscription users leverage Autodesk single-sign-on capability starting with this update. Users, who have not logged in via Autodesk single-sign-on previously, are to login once after applying the update
  • Users who are on subscription with single-user access, can log out and login via the in-product login control menu.
  • About Manage License dialog,
    • For users on subscription with single-user access, shows the license type as ‘User’ along with the logged-in user information.
    • On first product launch, Autodesk licensing tries to find a license associated with named-user identity and avoid showing up additional dialog, when possible.
  • “Let’s Get Started” dialog, when displayed, has updated visuals for ease of user action.
  • End users are required to activate maintenance (single-user access) serial numbers while connected to the internet. Offline activation of serial numbers are no longer supported. This change does not impact network licensing (multi-user access) customers.


  • Fixed an issue where the installation of licensing components hung on AWS environments.
  • Fixed licensing installer deployment issues through SCCM.
  • Fixed installation hang issue for suites when multiple products are installed on the users machine.
