    How do I get SolidWorks started?

    Nicholas Azar

      I just bought a new MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory. I partitioned it at 750mac and 250windows. I installed Windows 10 Education. I bought SOLIDWORKS Student Edition two weeks ago. I received two serial numbers, a CAD and a Compressor serial number. My problem is that when I open SOLIDWORKS on my desktop it takes me to SOLIDWORKS Product Activation. I click "Next" a few times including "Contact Information." It then says "Activation/Reactivation Succeeded." However, once I click "Finish" it says "This Student Edition has expired." I have called SOLIDWORKS customer support 3x and they say it appears as though I am activated, which I know. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
