Did you know that Solidworks rescinded the ability to activate your license on two separate machines?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.

While investigating license errors (that were due to an unrelated hardware issue), we stumbled upon this situation. The Usage tab shows 14 Solidworks Standard licenses total and 5 are free; the Borrowing tab shows 14 total and none free. The quantities (total and free) for every other product match one tab to the other.

Hi - I have a system which crashed whilst running SoliWorks, I replaced a faulty graphics card and now the PC is OK once more. Now when running SolidWorks (2014), it asks for a license, but the solidNetWork License manager says it has already issued licences to that user/PC.

My Simulation computer locked up and had to be hard shut down. Now the Flow Simulation & Solidworks Pro licenses that were allocated to my sim computer are still hung up and show that they are in use from the crashed session. So now I can't use flow simulation, because I have reached maximum license usage on my server. Shutting down the server during working hours is not a real good option for my engineering department.

Take a look at my workstation build and lets have suggestions on how I can improve it: I realize the motherboard is a bit over the top, but there are not that many x266 chipset boards available yet, and this one is certainly packet with features with many add-on upgrades already on the board. From the reviews I have seen it's a beast.

New laptop, Razer Blade Stealth, has Intel UHD 620 onboard grfx. I am able to open parts, make assemblies, and even turn an stl into a solid part in featureworks... but sadly as soon as I attempt to sketch SW crashes. I installed the drivers found here:Download Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows* [

VBE6EXT.OLB I just spent 6 hours with our tech support company trying to sort out why Solidworks would not work. I came in this morning to a notification from Microsoft that I had updates that were needed to be installed when I opened Micorsoft Outlook.

While creating a new assembly in Solidworks PDM, creating assemblies within Solidworks doesn’t work – the file gets created in the vault, but solidworks opens a different blank assembly without a part number. Is anyone facing similar problems ? For future reference try creating a post subject that is short and to the point.

Student Licenses When I started at this company a product had been started by a student using a student license and the owner did not know that the files he created would not be usable by a commercial version of SW because every file gets marked as being from a student version and watermarks any drawings it is used in. We made converting the files to a usable version as a condition of us purchasing seats of SW as I would otherwise get SolidEdge which I had used for 10 years.

We are currently running a 2017 SW license server which is still supporting our use of the PDM workgroup vault. We are still trying to move our documents out of that vault since we are discontinuing use of the PDM vault in preparation for 2018. Meanwhile, we have customers sending us SW drawings in 2018. We want to install a license server for 2018, but in doing so, will activating the licenses for the 2018 license server disable our 2017 license server (effectively disabling SW2017 and not

Since they decided to force internet licensing on the users with 2018, what or how do you activate the older versions of SW. I have one customer that still uses 2014 and when I go to start it up it is asking for activation. When it goes to SW & checks it says there are no seats available to activate. What do we need to do the get the older seats active now.

I recently bought a 2 in 1 tablet PC to use for school and also to have a kinda mobile device that could run SW for drawing at project locations. I installed SW 2017 on it and it worked pretty good at first, I could easilly create parts and medium sized assemblys. But after a windows update SW 2017 keeps crashing when ever I try to edit a part i.e: edit sketch, intersection cut and even when I try to make a 2D drawing form 3D part. When I open SW in openGL mode nothing is wrong and everything

Have 2017 SP3 installed, updated windows with the creators update, and now I can open parts in SW, but the moment I try and create or open a drawing, it crashes SW. Also the Crash reporter crashes, and Solidworks RX crashes. Everything is useless. Anyone know a fix?

I am surprised there was not a zillion other hits when I tried to search for this on the forum. Anyway, I am on ver 2015, and having a problem with the dialog box that comes up when SW detects a problem with a sketch, and allows you to cycle through each of them and shows the magnifying box. It is partially off-screen and only the bottom is showing.
