Reactivate education version

Estiaan Biewenga

Good day.


I have a education version for Archicad 24 and worked on a free frail for Archicad 25 for a fee days and want to activate my Archicad 25 with my education version and serial number but I'm struggle to stop the free trail to activate my education license. Please help and guide me.

Thank you very much for the question!


If you have already acquired a one-year Educational license, you can remove the trial license by navigating to:

  • macOS: MacHD/Users/Shared/ARCHICAD/AC_xx_xxx/
  • Windows: C:\Program Data\ARCHICAD\AC_xx_xxx\

and delete the trial.lic file from this folder.


Archicad will ask for a license next time you start it, there you can activate your new EDU license.


Please let me know how it goes!
Best regards,
