Take Advantage of the Autodesk Upgrade and Retirement Program

May 26, 2009

Simplified Upgrade Pricing Begins March 16, 2010

Autodesk is introducing a new, streamlined upgrade pricing model on March 16, 2010. Under our current upgrade pricing model, the price of your upgrade depends on which product release you own. After March 15, 2010, your upgrade from any of the three previous software releases will cost 50 percent of the price of a new license, no matter which release you own.

Each new release of our software is designed to help you work smarter and faster. That’s why we always encourage our customers to upgrade. The best way to get current and stay current is to upgrade your Autodesk® 2007, 2008, and 2009 software with Autodesk® Subscription before March 16, 2010.

Autodesk 2007 Software Retires

If you hold licenses for Autodesk 2007 products that are retiring, you have a limited time to upgrade. As of March 16, 2010, you’ll no longer receive upgrade pricing or technical support for these products. If you want the latest software after that date, you’ll have to pay for a new license at full price.
