If you have an existing SOLIDWORKS Network License and you purchase additional network licenses of SOLIDWORKS, or other network licenses of SOLIDWORKS products, such as Simulation, PDM, Inspection, Visualize, MBD, Composer … etc, then those new SOLIDWORKS licenses will simply be added to your existing SOLIDWORKS serial number (unless you have specifically requested that they not be).

Activate new SOLIDWORKS Licenses

Once SOLIDWORKS has processed the order and you have heard back that new licenses are ready to use, you will need to re-activate SolidNetWork License Manager so that users can make use of the new licenses. Starting with SolidNetwork License Manager 2021 the process for reactivation was made simpler by the addition of a dedicated button for reactivation. We have included the steps for both versions here.

Reactivating the SolidNetWork License Manager – 2021 and newer

STEP 1:  On the license server, launch the SolidNetWork License Manager Server and click Reactivate

STEP 4:  On the “Activate Your SOLIDWORKS Product” screen, either click “Select All” so that all serial numbers are highlighted, or hold down “Ctrl” and select each serial number that has had additional licenses added to it. Click Next to activate automatically over the internet, or if you do not have an internet connection on the server, you can activate manually.

Upon completion of reactivating the SolidNetWork License Manager, if you are looking to update the SOLIDWORKS components to include new add-ins or features, see the How to change your SOLIDWORKS Installation article.
