OpenLM has recently received queries about whether Autodesk license updates would be available in the near future. This is following Autodesk’s recent announcement that it would discontinue selling upgrades to customers that own permanent Autodesk licenses of older versions. This change is due to take effect on 01 February 2015.
Customers that own such licenses are prompted by this announcement to renew their maintenance, in order to maintain eligibility for upgrade after February 2015. To the question “How would such customers obtain updates after Feb 2015” Autodesk suggests to buy the latest version.
