The problem has been fixed. I called Autodesk at 1-855-301-9562 and explained the problem to them, and they had to \"re-sync\" my account on the backend, and about 5 minutes later my Eagle is now registered properly. I just needed to restart the software and it picked up the new license.
I'm having the same problem. I've spent the last hour or two installing, uninstalling, re-installing, trying to get my license to work. No luck. So, I called the help line number above, and it's outside of their business hours, so the office is closed. It's Saturday and I have to wait till Monday to get my license to work I'm a consultant trying to get some work done over the weekend and the software I purchased from Autodesk is blocking my ability to get anything done for two days Unbelievable! Poor product licensing and terrible support. Is there a better way
The free version still exists, but for anyone using Eagle for commercial purposes (from Tindie sellers to engineering firms) this is a big change. Even if you agree with the new pricing, a subscription model means you never actually own the software. This model will require licensing software that needs to phone home periodically and can be killed remotely. If you need to look back at a design a few years from now, you better hope that your subscription is valid, that Autodesk is still running the license server, and that you have an active internet connection.
Subscription model is a reaction to piracy as is advert laden apps on mobiles. Blame all the freetards pirating the software that has forced them to try a different model to make it profitable. I have an app on the Google play store, free version, 1.5 million downloads. Paid version, 1200 downloads. I would expect the ratio to pirate version of eagle to paid versions is similar.
Many times a company has been bought out or gone bankrupt and some software has been left in legal limbo because half the project is licensed to the original developers, while the other half licensed to the company that bought theirs. Nobody can come to an agreement, so the whole thing just ends up dead. 1e1e36bf2d
