Article by Joe Medeiros, CSWE updated August 20, 2020


When server components are moved, in particular, the SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWork License Manager, the path to the new location may need to be defined. This is done from the SOLIDWORKS PDM Administration.  To do this, double-click the License node to open it.
