In this article, we’ll see how to transfer Autocad (along with other programs) from one computer to another, including workspaces, profile settings, plug-ins, definitions, tool palletes, and of course drawings and data. In fact, you can also transfer other programs and files as well, not just Autocad, and they will all function just as on the old machine.
In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to transfer Autocad completely automatically – using Zinstall WinWin, and copy Autocad software, drawings and files from the old laptop or desktop to the new one. This tutorial works for XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 11. Yes, this does mean that you can transfer Autocad even from XP to Windows 11!
Note on licensing: the tool used in this tutorial transfers the licenses files as well, so if you have lost your disks or don’t remember the license number, you can still use it. However, it is up to you to make sure that your license is still valid for use on a new computer. Autocad will also verify license validity when it first starts.
That’s it! You now have Autocad, with all of your data and other programs, on your new computer.
