Serial Numbers

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 not included with your SOLIDWORKS license, enter them in the appropriate fields.
  • If your SOLIDWORKS Administrator has assigned products to you in the SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal, you can use the Login feature at the top of the page to automatically populate your assigned Serial Numbers.

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.
