Install SolidNetWork License Managers Before Installing License Clients

You should install and configure SolidNetWork License Manager on at least one computer prior to installing any SolidNetWork license client computers.

When installing with a SolidNetWork License serial number, SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager prompts you to enter the SolidNetWork License Manager computer name and port number, and then attempts to validate that information.

If you have not yet installed SolidNetWork License Manager on the computer you specified, this validation cannot succeed. However, in this case validation failure does not indicate whether you have supplied correct license manager information. If the license manager is installed, validation failures indicate that you have specified incorrect license manager information.
