Download and Installation procedure for DraftSight V1R3 in Windows 7 x64 Bit

Dear CAD Help Center readers again after a long interval I am here with you with a very good, fast, reliable and free CAD package named DraftSight launched by 3DS. Earlier I have tried the 32bit version and feel that this one is not in the race of CAD software's used for 2D drafting purpose because it was too slow and not giving the feeling of AutoCAD but this time I am shocked and realized that the newly released DraftSight Version V1R3 is fast, interactive, more reliable and a good alternative to the AutoCAD which can compete AutoCAD in near future. As of now it has almost all the basic and the advance commands and features but still cannot be comparable with the latest version of AutoCAD. But if you need a simple, fast and free CAD software which can handle your daily routine work like creation of new drawings, modification of existing drawings, Layouts , conversion of DXF to DWG or vice-versa (it supports DWG and DXF files up to 2010 version) then the DraftSight is the best solution for you. With the launch of new version 3DS has made a lot of improvements and also launched the separate versions for Windows 32 bit and 64 bit. Also they have launched latest beta version of DraftSight for other operating systems like Mac OS X and Linux. So here is the link for downloading the latest DraftSight for your specific requirement or OS.

I have been successfully using Draftsight for sometime but recently it required reactivation and now I cannot get it to work again. Updated to x64 and still same problem, asks for reactivation, I enter all the necessary details, looks like it's going to work then up pops the reactivation window again. Please how can I activate this?
