  • Download methods:
    • Install now - This method is the default for installation from the Autodesk desktop app, is available for Windows only. It is faster because it lets you select only the products and components you need and starts without waiting for all files to download. Use this option if you are installing on a single computer or installing a trial. (Administrators can't use this method to create a network deployment
  • Download now (recommended) - Download now uses the Autodesk Download Manager (DLM), which saves you time by extracting packaged files while they download. DLM also boosts performance through network acceleration techniques
  • Browser Download - This method downloads a complete installation package from a browser. It is slower than Download now because it doesn't use the Download Manager. Browser download may sometimes be the only alternative available for single users and for administrators creating deployments
  • Select the Download now option
