I can't seem to activate the costing feature. When I select the icon the icon it tells me it's not activated and cannot be launched. Is this function available with solidworks premium office? If so how would I activate it?
I don't recall ever having to activate it. If you are running SolidWorks Office, you won't have access to it. It's only available in SolidWorks Professional or higher. If it's an activation issue, try going to Help > Activate Licenses. It's not an add-in, but available in the Evaluate tab or under Tools > SolidWorks Applications menu.
Thanks, I will look into getting the "Professional" version for that application.
You must have the SolidWorks Professional License to work with SolidWorks Costing.
During the installation itself, you can select SolidWorks costing in the "Products to be installed" Page.
Once after the installation completed you can find costing in your SolidWorks user interface as like below mentioned.
