For 2018 products: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\CLM\LGS\<Product_Key>_2018.0.0.F

_NETWORK
_USER (if your license is based on your Autodesk ID and does not have a serial number)

Important: Verify that your text editor did not save LGS.data with a hidden “.txt” extension.

Solution 4: Try other troubleshooting measures


If the previous solutions don’t solve your problem, try each of the following, one at a time. Test for
success before trying the next one.

Scan your system with your antivirus software to check for adware or malware. If you nd
adware or malware, you can search the Internet for ways to uninstall it.

Disable your antivirus software.

Sign out from all Autodesk cloud services and applications that may be running on your system
(e.g. Autodesk Desktop App, A360, Fusion 360, etc.)

Reactivate your license:

1. Be sure that les and folders are not hidden using these instructions.

2. Go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ADUT 
ADUT and remove all les.

C++ Runtime Libraries

6. Run your AutoCAD product and try to activate it.

Uninstall your AutoCAD product and reinstall it as follows:

1. Use the Windows Uninstall control panel to remove the product.

Note: If you are getting licensing errors from all your Autodesk products, you may need to
perform a clean uninstall. Be sure to back up your system before you perform a clean
uninstall.
2. Download the software again using Browser Download.

3. Run the installer to reinstall the product.


MENU

Solution 5: Create a deployment to reinstall your AutoCAD product.


A deployment install is a workaround when normal installation fails because of locked or deleted
license information. There are several reasons for the loss of license data, including operating system
updates. Unlike a regular installation, a deployment installation gathers your license information
before you try to start the product, replacing lost or corrupted information.

Attempt this solution only if you get a licensing error after trying Solutions 1-4.

1. If you haven’t removed the previous installation of your AutoCAD product, uninstall it now using
the Windows Uninstall control panel.

2. Follow these instructions to create a deployment.

3. Locate Setup.exe in your deployment path.

4. Right-click Setup.exe and select Run As Administrator.

5. Follow the instructions for installing your AutoCAD product deployment.

6. Restart your computer and start your AutoCAD product.
