SOLIDWORKS 2023 has made it quicker and simpler for CAD administrators to add SOLIDWORKS license serial numbers. Previously, the installation of the SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWork License Manager Server needed to be modified to add and remove network serial numbers.

In 2023, CAD administrators can now use the Product Activation Wizard from within SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWork License Manager Server to add and remove serial numbers for perpetual and term licenses.

Add SOLIDWORKS 2023 Licenses:

  1. On the License Server, open the SolidNetWork License Manager Server application.
  2. On the ‘Server Administration’ tab, click the ‘Modify’ button.
