.CAS File Extension
File Type 1Autodesk Cascade License File
What is a CAS file?
License file used by Autodesk products such as AutoCAD and Revit; contains information that validates a purchased software copy; used in a "cascading" license setup, where a network installation of the software can be used by multiple networked computers.
CAS files use the filename CascadeInfo.cas. These files can potentially become corrupt if the computer unexpectedly crashes, denying access to the software. If this occurs, consult the Autodesk support to resolve the issue.
By default, the CascadeInfo.cas file is located in the following directory:
- Windows Vista/7: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ADLM\
- Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\ADLM\
- Mac OS X: /Library/Application Support/Autodesk/Adlm/.config/
