Legacy seats are not upgrades or crossgrades from retired products, but are discounted new seats. Upgrades or crossgrades from retired products are not available for purchase from Autodesk after the retirement of that product. As with upgrades and crossgrades, Legacy Programme transactions require a valid serial number from the retired product for each new seat purchased. 7.

Yes, if you require a network deployment for the new seats, then the network licence, rather than the standalone licence, should be purchased. Legacy customers are not grandfathered into the deployment of their retired product. 8. Is Autodesk Subscription required to purchase through the Autodesk Legacy Programme? Yes, Autodesk Subscription is required on all Legacy Programme purchases. Subscription holders receive benefits including incremental product enhancements, personalised web support and self-paced training options with one annual fee. 9. Are there any other requirements to participate in the Autodesk Legacy Programme? No. Other than the purchase of Autodesk Subscription, and providing a valid serial number for the qualifying products in an amount equivalent to the number of new discounted seats a customer wants to purchase under this Programme, there are no additional requirements. 10.
