Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.

their solution for enabling data interoperability between
AutoCAD and other programs. DXF was originally introduced in
December 1982 as part of AutoCAD 1.0, and was intended to
provide an exact representation of the data in the AutoCAD
native file format, DXF (Drawing), for which Autodesk didn't
