Serial Number

Serial numbers, found on the distribution box, associate your computer with the SolidWorks products you have purchased.

If SolidWorks products are already installed on your computer, their serial numbers are displayed by default.
  • Enter your SolidWorks serial number if it is not already displayed.
  • If you have serial numbers for products that are not included with your SolidWorks license, click the product entry underneath Do You Have Other Serial Numbers? and then enter the serial number for that product.

If you have an internet connection, the serial numbers you provide will determine the products to which you are entitled as you continue through the installation process.

Because there are multiple ways to purchase SolidWorks products, some serial numbers can cover two or more products. For example, a SolidWorks serial number might enable you to install SolidWorks Simulation without entering a separate SolidWorks Simulation serial number. In addition, some products do not require a serial number. If you have any questions about your serial numbers, contact your VAR.
