Is there a path to convert from dongle based licensing to a software license manager for SW12?
Contact your VAR and I believe there was a minimal fee. We did this back in 2011 maybe to bring our standalone simulation licenses onto the network license. (Although the $50 fee has likely increased)
If I'm correctly every license after 2007 can also be used activation base.
Just call your var and request the full 24 digit license code and install 2012 if you on subscription until that date.
Don't pin me on this but that's what I remember.
With kind regards
As long as your license is entitled(was on subscription) to 2007 SP4 or any version newer, you already are entitled to activation based SNL. SOLIDWORKS automatically converted them starting at 2007 SP4 and onwards.
Just install your 2012 SNL and pop in your serial and activate. Then proceed to toss your dongle in the computer recycle bin.
