Why am I unable to obtain a license for SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard?

Article by Mersedeh Zandvakili created/updated March 28, 2019

Complimentary seats of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard are included with SOLIDWORKS Professional or Premium Network License that is on active SOLIDWORKS Subscription Service. But in order to use them you need to reactivate your SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard license every year.

Once you activate your network license manager after purchasing your licenses, permanent licenses like SOLIDWORKS do not need reactivation until the server is upgraded or moved to a different location. However, complimentary seats of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard are not permanent and are based on active subscriptions, therefore they need to be renewed annually.

To reactivate your network license manager please follow the steps in the image below with the SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWork License Manager:

You can also use the email activation method if there is not Internet connection available.
