Did you know that Solidworks rescinded the ability to activate your license on two separate machines? This was super handy when you had a portable laptop and an office computer setup. Or, some call it a "home" license, allowing you to activate at the office and at home. Now we have to transfer our license between the computers or purchase an additional license for the second machine.

I was creating a new administrative image for SW2018 SP 0.1 and one of the files in SOLIDWORKS CAM was flagged by ESET anti-virus as being a potentially unsafe application. The file in question is 'elevate.exe' in the SOLIDWORKS CAM/NCEditor/Sys folder. In looking at the Quarantine history, the file was also flagged in my PR1 admin image.

I am fairly new to PDM admin work, and this one is stumping me. Is it possible to have a Variable revert to the Default Value everytime the file is checked out? I want to grab the current users initials to add to the revision block.

I get an "Internal Error: CoCreate Instance Failed" message when I try to download SW2018 SP1. I am wondering what the issue is. I am not coming up with much in the way of what the error means...

I'm having trouble installing PDM 2017 Client on a new computer. The installation for SolidWorks 2017 was run yesterday by our IT tech and looks fine. He says he's pretty sure he checked the correct options during the install to include the PDM client, but I don't think it installed. When I go to the Windows start menu the "Solidworks PDM" folder doesn't show up on the list.

I need to move the Network License Manager to another computer. From S-048874 I determined I need to transfer the license using SolidNetWork License Administrator, which I do not have. I only have SolidNetWork License Manager 2014, which does not give me this option. I have installed the network license manager for 2018 on the new computer already, but it will not let me use it until I return the license on the old computer that has 2014.

Anyone have any solutions to SolidWorks' slow processing on large parts with lots of features? In my opinion, this really isn't a new issue. This has been a problem as far back as I can remember (2006-2007??)...It's just causing me a lot of frustration lately. Is this just a shortfall of the software?

I started having this issue in SW 2017 SP4.1. I'm still having this issue after recently updating to SW 2017 SP5.0. In any drawing, after I go into Sheet Properties and select a sheet format other than the one loaded with the template, then try to save the file, I get the error: "An unknown error occurred while accessing ."

Not even sure if this is, at all, possible but we've got Synology Rackstations that have Docker packages available on them. I know containers in Docker are lightweight and not full-fledged Virtual Machines (by comparison). They're meant to run single applications/services. I'm curious if it is at all possible to take something like the SolidNetWorks License application and run in a Docker container as a service.
