Cannot Activate AutoCAD 2009

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Recently my clients asked me to install Autocad 2009 into her notebook. The installation process ran fine at first. Then, came the activation process. I saw the product activation’s box below just after I double clicked the Autocad 2009 icon on Windows desktop

Capture

I clicked button Next and the weird looking interface appears. See below.

Capture 

Operating System –-> Windows 7

Application Software –-> AutoCAD 2009



Solution:

  1. Cancel the activation process first by clicking the button Cancel on the AutoCAD 2009 Product Activation’s box.

    Capture

  2. Now, press Capture --> type regedit –-> click OK –-> click Yes to launch Windows registry editor. 

    Capture

  3. Double click HKEY_CURRENT_USER –-> Software –-> Microsoft –-> Windows –> CurrentVersion –-> Internet Settings –-> Zones

  4. Then, you will see a subfolder just under the folder Zones indicated by the blue arrow below –-> right click on the subfolder –-> click Delete.

    Capture

  5. Click to highlight the folder 0 –-> find out data item named Flags –-> make sure its value is 0x00000021 (33)

    Capture

  6. Try to activate the AutoCAD 2009 again.
