Administering Individual Licenses

正常进入惠泽天下58hznetYou can set an individual license to use machine activation or online licensing. This section covers machine activation. To learn more about online licensing, see the Admin Portal.

Typically, administration of individual licenses consists of activating and deactivating licenses directly from the SOLIDWORKS software.

正常进入惠泽天下58hznetActivation is a product licensing and registration process for SOLIDWORKS stand-alone (non-SolidNetWork License) licenses. Typically, if your product license is not activated, SOLIDWORKS tries to activate it when you start the product.

You can deactivate individual licenses by clicking Help > Licenses > Deactivate in the SOLIDWORKS software.

Activating a License

Before you can run SOLIDWORKS products on an individual computer, you must activate the license for that computer.

Activation requires that you have internet or email access. After activation, you do not need to be online to use the products. If you do not have email access on the computer where you use this product, you can save the activation file and send it from another computer.

This process:
  • Activates all software licenses across the SOLIDWORKS product line.
  • Allows you to move licensing rights from one computer to another.
  • Can be performed immediately (recommended) or within 30 days of installation.
  • Eliminates the need for dongles. However, if you run previous versions of SOLIDWORKS products that do not use activation, you need to retain the dongle.

For system administrators who have multiple serial numbers to manage, you can use the Administrative Image Option Editor. For details, see Administrative Image Option Editor.
