If you have purchased additional SOLIDWORKS licenses to float on your existing network and received a notice from our office indicating they’ve been processed, then you have ONE CRUCIAL STEP left to perform before your users will be able to utilize these new licenses – REACTIVATE YOUR LICENSE MANAGER. While this only takes a couple of minutes to do, it is readily forgotten about.
Step 1: Load up the SolidNetWork Licence Manager on the Server machine that is hosting your licences
Step 2: From the ‘Server Administration’ tab, select ‘Modify’
Step 3: Choose the option to ‘Activate/Reactivate your product license’
Step 4: Select ‘Next’ to maintain the same firewall settings as you had before. For more information on this setting click here
Step 5: Click ‘Select All’ to highlight all of your SOLIDWORKS network serial numbers, if the serial number for the product you wish to add is not listed then click here to learn how to add additional keys to your network.
Step 6: After connecting to the SOLIDWORKS server, it should now have refreshed the licence count to include your new purchase.
