Serial Numbers

Serial numbers associate your computer with the SOLIDWORKS products that you have purchased.

If SOLIDWORKS products are already installed on your computer, their serial numbers display by default:
  • Enter your SOLIDWORKS serial number if it does not display.
  • If you have serial numbers for products not included with your SOLIDWORKS license, enter them in the appropriate fields.

If you have an internet connection, the serial numbers you provide determine the products to which you are entitled as you continue through the installation process.

Because there are multiple ways to purchase SOLIDWORKS products, some serial numbers can cover two or more products. For example, a SOLIDWORKS serial number might enable you to install SOLIDWORKS Simulation without entering a separate SOLIDWORKS Simulation serial number. In addition, some products do not require a serial number. If you have any questions about your serial numbers, contact your VAR.
