F/X CAD is an Autodesk OEM product that requires a Land F/X license to operate. Because F/X CAD is a perpetual license, you are not required to upgrade to each new version. However, we recommend staying within two years of the latest version. Anything older than the two latest versions is considered “Legacy."
Please note that Land F/X licenses will only operate with the five most recent versions of CAD.
Installation & Activation
Each F/X CAD seat can be installed and activated on up to two computers, for use by one person.
See our article on how many users and computers are allowed for each F/X CAD seat.
A license mismatch is defined by either:
- Different versions of F/X CAD, or
- A different number of F/X CAD licenses and Land F/X licenses
If your account has any mismatch of licenses and your number of F/X CAD sessions exceeds your purchased count, you will be notified that you are using an unlicensed version of F/X CAD. Please contact Land F/X Support immediately. If we find any abuse to licensing, we have the right to audit your installations and licenses, and possibly suspend your licenses.
Activating a Legacy Version
If you have an F/X CAD version that is older than the two latest versions, you will be charged a $50 activation fee each time you install or activate. All activations take place through us but are processed by Autodesk. The fee is simply to cover our costs for the Legacy activations.
For more information on Legacy versions and our technical support policy, see our Land F/X Scope of Support.
Upgrading Your F/X CAD
Immediately after you pay for an F/X CAD upgrade, you may be notified that you have a license mismatch each time you launch your currently installed version of F/X CAD. We understand that installing immediately is not always possible, but we request that you install the latest version within 45 days of upgrading.
