Installing Visualize Boost with the SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager

You install Visualize Boost using the SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager. It requires a separate serial number.

Because the purpose of Visualize Boost is to offload rendering, you should install Visualize Boost on computers different from the ones running SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional. You can maximize rendering performance by installing Visualize Boost on computers with multiple CPU cores and graphics processing units (GPUs).

To install SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost:

  1. Start the SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager.
  2. On the Welcome page, select Individual.
  3. Do the following:
    1. On the Serial Number page, expand Visualization.
    2. Select SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost and enter the serial number.
    3. Click Next.
  4. Follow instructions for system warnings and click Next.
  5. On the Summary page, accept the terms of the SOLIDWORKS License Agreement and click Install Now.

Double-click the SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost shortcut icon on the desktop to open the interface.
