As I said in an earlier post, having Autodesk Design Review 2007 be free is intended for customers until Autodesk Design Review 2008 is ready. As a product that was designed to be free from its inception, Autodesk Design Review 2008 will not require a serial number. Since Autodesk Design Review 2007 was originally released as a for pay product, it does require a serial number. We have provided serial number 400-96523577 for this purpose. This serial number is only necessary for install. You do not need to register Autodesk Design Review 2007 for it to operate. In fact registering it fails, since the serial number has already been registered. So please use the serial number for your installation but skip the registration step.
OK - skip the Register Autodesk Design Review after launching ADR on the Getting Started page. But unable to access the workarea - the only options I have is File and Tools File only has open. Tools limited to 3 tabs of nothing I need. If you don't need to register to access the work space shown in the tutorial then how do you get the functions shown?

We have an open feature request from another customer to have more choices available without a DWF file open. If you open up a DWF file, the full menu of choices will be available. An empty DWF file is available for this purpose: http://dwf.blogs.com/beyond_the_paper/2006/07/working_with_dw.html

Can you help me? I put in a request on our subscription also, but that takes days or weeks sometimes.
I loaded this software to do one thing, print DWF files, batch print them specifically.
I get part way through the wizard and it grey's out the print options, which is what I need to batch print.

Unfortunately I am not a technical support expert. The problem you describe sounds specific to your computer or your printer driver. I will ask around and if I get any valuable information, I will post a follow up comment.
