There are 3 methods to download, I have outlined what each method is and the benefits of each

Install Now: Installs a installer window for that product, as it installs it downloads the components as required.



The best way to get up and running quickly on this computer, with download and install in less than 1/2 the time of a Browser

Download and subsequent Installation. Offers product selection prior to download, high compression, and automatic download resumption after connection interruptions.

Download Now: Installs the download manager first and then begins downloading the product( This allows you to pause download, if you loose connectivity it will restart the download from the last point) 



Delivers a complete standalone installation package with up to 50% compression and automatic download resumption after connection interruptions.

What Happens

A small download manager is first installed and enables an optimized download of the complete software installation package. Once the installation package has downloaded you can begin the software installation on this or other computers without further connection to the internet.

Creating deployments, installing Autodesk products on a different computer, or at a different time.



Browser Download: Downloads directly within  Internet explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox etc.


Works without installing additional software. As compared to other methods, in-browser downloads are less efficient, and less reliable especially when saving large files. Browsers cannot take advantage of superior compression (smaller file sizes) and automatic download resumption abilities built into Download Now and Install Now.

What Happens

The built-in file save mechanism of your web browser is used to deliver a complete stand-alone installation package. Once the package has downloaded, you must extract it , then begin the software installation on this or other computers.
