SOLIDWORKS now uses online License Activation instead of a registration code as of SOLIDWORKS 2007 SP 3.1 for standalone seat licensing. You get one Activation per SOLIDWORKS license.

To Activate a License

·     The first time you start a newly installed version of SOLIDWORKS it should automatically ask if you want to activate your seat. If not go to the Help menu in SOLIDWORKS and select “Activate Licenses”

 ·     Follow the onscreen instructions, and prompts. Fill out the form with the required information.

·     The activation will take some time to process as it communicates with the SOLIDWORKS License Server.

·     You will then see a confirmation window that the Activation Succeeded and you are ready to Design with SolidWorks.


To Deactivate a License

·     If you receive a new machine to do your SOLIDWORKS designing on you will need to deactivate a license of SOLIDWORKS before uninstalling the software off the old machine.

 ·       Start SOLIDWORKS and go to the Help menu in SOLIDWORKS and select “Transfer Licenses”

·       Follow the onscreen instructions and prompts, and wait as the deactivation will take some time to process as it communicates with the SOLIDWORKS License Server.

·    Once SOLIDWORKS is deactivated you can then uninstall and move the software to your new machine and follow the Activation process listed above.

Design better!
