Currently there are 3 methods to downloading Autodesk programs.
- Install Now
- Download Now
- Browser Download
"Download Now" is, in my opinion, the best method to download and install the Autodesk software. It is more reliable, less confusing and faster than the "Browser Download" which downloads multiple files. Also, unlike the "Install now" method, it is portable and you can use it multiple times once it is downloaded. You can copy the folder to a network drive and others can use it to install so you only have to download it one time! Talk about saving time!!!
It has a little bit of an interface (after you install it) and you can pause and restart or even cancel the download.
I refer people to this download option multiple times per week and thought I should do a blog for it, but when I saw the Autodesk KB article I thought, why reinvent the wheel. I like their steps, screen shots and tips. My only fear is that Autodesk changes the link someday. DOH!
So, without further ado.. please click Here to get to the Autodesk KB article on how to get to and use the Download Now option.
