Settings Administrator Tool

You can use the Settings Administrator Tool to set system options that are applied when deploying or upgrading the SOLIDWORKS software, and to prevent users from changing those options. This tool replaces the SOLIDWORKS Settings Wizard for deploying settings, although that wizard is still available for copying settings.

There are three steps to using the Settings Administrator Tool:
  1. Create an administrative image to access the tool.
  2. Use the Settings Administrator to generate an *.sldsettings file which contains your selected SOLIDWORKS options.
  3. Include the *.sldsettings file in SOLIDWORKS installations.
