is there a way to download Solidworks to my computer if it does not have a disk drive?
Yes. Extract all files from CD on another computer, place them in a portable drive or network shared drive. Take CD 2 and place in the SAME directory. Some of the files and folders will overlap, tell it to merge folders but keep original files. Navigate to Setup.exe This is how we deploy almost all of our programs.
You can install onto a server and create an Admin Image, then install to a PC from there.
Or, if you pay for maintenance, you can install online.
Exactly, I haven't used a CD to install SW since 2011.
