Returning a Borrowed SolidNetWork License

Since a borrowed SolidNetWork license is removed from the pool of available licenses, that borrowed license must be returned for it to become available again.

  1. Start SolidNetWork License Manager on the client machine by clicking Start > SOLIDWORKS Tools version > SolidNetWork License Manager Client.
  2. On the License Borrowing tab:
    1. Select the products to return, click Return, and then click Yes to confirm.
    2. Click Refresh. The Expire Date column becomes blank, indicating that the licenses have been returned.
  3. Click OK.
It is not necessary to return licenses after the expiration date. The license is returned to the pool on the SolidNetWork License Manager at midnight on the expiration date and the applications on the remote system no longer run.
