Where are my Autodesk media and documents?!

In case you’re wondering, there’s an email out that went out from Autodesk that clearly says that new media will NOT be shipped; you’ll have to download them yourself from subscription center. What a joy! It’s not uncommon though, Microsoft started doing the same thing last year I believe.

That scary email you’ll be getting (or already got… gotten? HA!):


If you didn’t get the email but need documentation and/or media, go to this link: Autodesk Documents & Media and you’ll see this screenshot:

    When we downloaded and installed it from the website we lost over 10gb of hard drive on every workstation. After talking to tech support it appears that with the download there is the original download file, the expanded file and the actual program itself. If you delete the expanded file you will not be able to repair the installation. We run very fast and expensive program drives so 10gbs lost on every workstation is a lot of capacity and cost to us. With a DVD you only need the space for the actual program itself. It would be nice is this was mentioned on the download page.

      Hi Gregg,

      That’s actually correct and stinks really badly. I have a colleague facing the same issue with his 2011 standalone installation. If you are running a network (not network license, which is something different), I’d recommend installing your software via network deployments since network installation paths rarely change.
