SolidNetWork Licensing and SOLIDWORKS Product Activation

If you run SOLIDWORKS Product Activation from the SolidNetWork License Manager Server, you must specify the product activation action to perform.

The first time you run a new or updated installation of the SolidNetWork License Manager Server, you are prompted to activate it. If you do not activate it or are not prompted, then in the Server Administration tab, click Modify to run the SOLIDWORKS Product Activation Wizard.
