AutoCAD 2020 license error
Hello everyone, let’s see if you can help me with a problem that has arisen with AutoCAD and Revit, which tells me that my Autodesk licenses are not valid. The thing is that I had AutoCAD installed and everything was working correctly, but when I installed Revit 2020, I started to get a warning message telling me that my licenses were invalid.
I opened the task manager with Ctrl+Alt+Del and I saw that there is indeed a process that in the description says Autodesk Genuine Service and I think it is the cause of this error. I don’t know how to uninstall Autodesk Genuine Service from my PC and if this will avoid this message.
The autocad license you are using is not valid 2017.
Maybe you already know, but in case you have not noticed, when installing the latest versions of Autodesk programs appears by default a new component called Autodesk Genuine Service. The main purpose of this program is to check if the Autodesk software installed is legitimate or not, and it is responsible for the well-known message “Autodesk license is invalid”.
If it detects a license activation that is not authentic, the program will inform us about it by means of that dreaded notification that I mentioned before. This warning will appear at every program startup until we take action or the active license is no longer “valid”.
If you already knew about the existence of this program, you have probably already tried to uninstall it from the Windows Control Panel. Of course, you will have realized that it is not possible to uninstall it, so the problem persists.
At the end of the process a message will appear confirming the uninstallation, but if you want to check for yourself, go to the Control Panel and you will be able to verify that the program is no longer installed on the computer. Good!
Autocad license not valid 2020
Note: For versions prior to version 2017, reinstall the software to change the license type. When reinstalling, select the license type. To do this, use the types for versions prior to version 2017: standalone license or network license.
If the software starts Follow this workflow to reset the license type using the license manager. If the trial license has expired, click You already have a license at the bottom of the Trial version expired dialog box.
AutoCAD 2019 license error
If you have done all the steps in the XFORCE guide on both Mac and Windows but it tells you that the license is invalid, then you need to lock the AutoDesk hosts (Both Windows and Mac).
Thanks in advance for your help. I have tried to activate the AutoCAD license and I have not been able to. The only thing I have done differently from what you said, was to install first the autocad in English, the developer tools and then the file to install in Spanish. I have also tried to block the hosts and it still gives me error. I would be grateful for any suggestion.

@isabel Good Isabel, you have to block in the Windows firewall the following 4 folders (See how to block folders in Firewall > https://www.zentinels.net/bloquear-una-carpeta-entera-en-el-firewall-de-windows/
