Solidworks license activation/deactivation

Hi everyone,

If you switch between different computers (stationary and laptop for example) and you have only one license you have to move the license with you using the SW activation wizard. I have been wondering if it is possible to write a script which deactivates/activates the SOLIDWORKS license automatically, so you don't have to go through the manual process every time you want to move the license to another machine.


Ultimately I would run this script when logging into the computer and before logging out. In this way I wouldn't have to remember which machine the license is active on, and I wouldn't have to remember to release the license from the stationary computer every time I leave office with my laptop.


I don't see support for this in the API. Any input?
