SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager Application Help

SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager is a stand-alone application that installs and updates your SOLIDWORKS products.

SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager is the primary tool for downloading, installing, modifying, updating, repairing, and removing the SOLIDWORKS software.

You can run SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager:
  • From a SOLIDWORKS DVD or a shared source or download folder (when installing a new version)
  • From the Control Panel Add or Remove Programs page (when modifying or removing an existing version)
  • Through a scheduled or manual update check (when detecting, downloading, and installing new release versions)

Each version of SOLIDWORKS has a version of SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager specific to that SOLIDWORKS version.
