SolidWorks Installation Manager can automatically update client computers installed from an administrative image.
Typically, administrative images are organized in folders on a server. To support the automatic upgrade of clients, the administrative image must be located in a shared folder.
After upgrading the administrative image, the original installation will be in one folder and the upgraded installation will be in another folder. To use the upgraded installation, remove the sharing option from the original administrative image folder and then add the sharing option to the upgraded administrative image folder.
When SolidWorks starts on a client machine that installed from the original administrative image, it sees the new version and upgrades the client.
