Moving a SolidNetWork License

To move a SolidNetWork license to a new or upgraded computer, first deactivate the license to the license key server at Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS Corporation, then reactivate it on the other computer.

If you were unable to deactivate the license to Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS Corporation (because of hard drive failure, for example), reactivation is still successful in most cases. If not, contact your VAR for help.

To move a SolidNetWork license back to the server:

  1. Start the SolidNetWork License Manager Server by clicking Start > SOLIDWORKS Tools version > SolidNetWork License Manager Server.
  2. In the Server Administration tab, under License Information, click Modify. The SOLIDWORKS Product Activation wizard starts.
  3. Under What would you like to do?, select Deactivate a software license and then click Next.
  4. Under How would you like to deactivate?, select Automatically over the internet (recommended).
  5. Under Contact Information, specify an email contact address.
  6. Click Next. The deactivation of the product license completes.
