Providing yet another entry in the it’ll never happen again file, Autodesk has issued a fix for an AutoCAD 2018 subscription licensing crash.
Lessons we learned from this:
- AutoCAD doesn’t just phone home once every 30 days to maintain even a long-term a subscription license, it phones home 24 hours later too. And probably every 24 hours after that.
- Desktop software that relies on the internet to continue working is a terrible idea.
- Yes, it will happen again.
