You'll activate F/X CAD 2023 by entering a unique Serial Number and Product Key provided by Autodesk, which we'll email to you within a day or two of your purchase. Activation no longer requires a Request Code or Activation Code as it did with F/X CAD versions 2020 and older.
On how many computers can you install and activate one license of F/X CAD 2023?
Please also note that Autodesk has stepped up its enforcement of the policy that one license of F/X CAD 2023 is only to be installed on one person's work computer and home computer or laptop, and only one of these installations may be used at a time by that person. When a purchase happens for F/X CAD 2023, whether it is an upgrade or first-time purchase, 1 license = 1 serial number = 2 installations (home or laptop) per user. More information

How to activate F/X CAD 2023
First, install F/X CAD 2023 (if you haven't already).
When you first open F/X CAD 2023, you'll see a dialog box named Data collection and use.

Is this screen showing up blank? A security setting in Internet Explorer may be blocking the activation. See the official Autodesk solution.
In the next screen, click Activate to begin activating F/X CAD 2023.
At the time of your purchase, we sent a request to Autodesk for your custom Serial Number and Product Key. We will email you these items upon receiving them. Please allow up to 48 hours after your purchase to receive this email.
To use F/X CAD 2023 in trial mode temporarily while waiting for your activation information, follow our steps to change your F/X CAD license type to Trial. You can then use the same steps to change back to the Serial Number license type after you've received your activation email and are ready to activate.
