How to stop autocad from accessing internet

Asked By 220 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,
I am an autocad user. I use autocad to design in 2D and 3D. Autocad is a great creation of autodesk that makes our imagination true. But mu problem is I use internet connection of low bandwidth. And when I use autocad it uses my internet connection to contact with autodesk. I know this will not do any harm to my computer but it consumes most of my bandwidth and while using autocad I can not access internet because of it. So I decided that I need to stop autocad from accessing internet. But I do not know the procedure. So if you guys have any solution then please help me in this matter.

How to stop autocad from accessing internet


Greetings Gary B Graham,


Here is what you need to do. I hope you are using Windows.

1. Press Win + R on your keyboard or go to Start -> Run or go to Start and type Run and press enter.

2. Once the Run function is opened type in regedit.

3. In Regedit navigate to the images below.

Windows Xp/VIsta

Windows 7

4. Double Click the InfoCenterON and type the Value 0 instead of 1.

5. Exit the Registry Editor and restart your PC just in case.

Hope this helps you,
