Download Installation Media from the Customer Portal

All your installation media is available from the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal.

If you cannot access the Customer Portal, contact your Value Added Reseller to obtain DVDs.

To download the installation media from the Customer Portal:

  1. Log in to the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal as a Subscription Service Customer, using your email address and password, or your SOLIDWORKS serial number.
  2. In the Download section, click Downloads and Updates.
  3. In the Downloads page, in Select Version, select the release year to download.
  4. In the SOLIDWORKS tab, under Product, select the product and service pack for your operating system. For a major release, you can download:
    • One .ZIP file that includes the complete set of files.
    • Or two .ZIP files: SOLIDWORKS Media (1 of 2) and SOLIDWORKS Media (2 of 2). Splitting the download into two files is convenient if you have a slow internet connection.
      This option is not available for service packs.
  5. For the latest major release, click SOLIDWORKS year, for example SOLIDWORKS Products 2020 0.0 to download the software in one .ZIP file.
  6. In the SOLIDWORKS Download EULA page, click Accept Agreement and Continue.
  7. In the next page, click Download.

    The SolidWorksSetup.exe downloads to your machine. The file extracts to a folder location and starts the Installation Manager.

You can also choose the manual download method. This option lets you download the full set of installation files selectively. If you choose this option, follow instructions on the web page.
