Windows 11 Upgrade

Not yet upgraded

We recommend deactivating the license before upgrading to Windows 11. You can do this by starting BricsCAD and clicking Help > BricsCAD License in the menu bar. Here you will find the Deactivate button.

Once upgraded, you can activate with your activation key as before.

Note: This only applies to online activations. Manual activations will not be affected.

Already upgraded

V14 or older

If you have upgraded with V14 still activated, you might get an error: The license for this product is locked to another computer or is using an invalid hostid. (Error -4)

V15 or newer

Upgrading with V15 or higher should not cause any problems.

If an activation dialog appears when starting BricsCAD, enter your activation key in the dialog and BricsCAD should start.
