Upgrading Network License Manager

April 24, 2012

If you are preparing to upgrade to 2013 and you have network licensed Autodesk applications, please read on. Autodesk recommends upgrading the Network License Manager to version 11.10 for 2013 applications. You can do this even before upgrading the applications since the NLM is backwards compatible. Performing this upgrade and getting your new LIC files in advance can save you time when you do get ready to roll out the new applications. Although the NLM is included with your product, you can also download it separately.

For more details, Jimmy Bergmark at JTB  World has put together a comprehensive set of information and download links regarding this new version of the NLM.
