PLU emergency license for AutoCAD

EmergencyExit With the Portable Licence Utility there is an "emergency license". It is not to be misused and cannot be used every day.  How long it takes before you can use it again is not documented or revealed by Autodesk.

When can this be useful? Say you have exported a license to your home PC and in last minute find that you need to work overtime. There is no need to panic, having to go home and back to work again. In a case like this you can use the emergency license.

    You can read more about the subject in the newsgroups. Here, here and here for example.

    Here is a quote from Cy that worked for Autodesk before:

    'On the source PC, if you export a license just before going home, but suddenly find you have to do One More Urgent Thing, you can usually still run the product for 24 hours using the "emergency license". This is automatically activated by simply launching the product again, after export. The 24-hour period begins the moment the product is launched. Note: this is for emergencies, so you can't use it every day; it's allowed something like once a month.'
