I recently installed a CAD machine for one of our users, and while trying to register the software (2011 version) I noticed that the serial and product key were not entered correctly by the person that installed it.  The serial I can change easy enough when I try to register it and it fails, it allows me to put the correct on in.  But I don't see an option to change the product key anywhere.  Anyone know where I can find the file or setting that will let me put the correct one in so I can get this registered?  Thanks

From my experience, the product key has always been automatically been filled in by the software install process. If the product key is incorrect then there is some problem in the software install process. This is something that is hard coded in and would be a mistake from AutoDesk if it were incorrect. I would call AutoDesk for install help - 1-800-551-1490 is the last number that I used.

Past install issues usually end with Autodesk recommending complete uninstalls and then complete reinstalls. Not convenient but it usually works.
