I know this has been discussed before, but to just throw in my 2 cents.  When I had 2 machines running (office and home) with a 2017 fresh install.  Then of course, you accept the EULA for that software version.

 

Now i cant use both systems, what if I forget to deactivate before i leave work?  My VAR answer was give us a call, we will do it for you.

 

Fine and Dandy, what if its 11 p.m. on a Saturday and I cannot get a hold of my VAR.  Or god forbid, what if I jump on a plane to fly to Europe, and I cant get SW running because my office computer was not deactivated?

 

This is total B.S.  Dont even get me started on the rights of a user vs. a company changing a EULA for a version of software they already sold a year after it was installed.

 

This is downright criminal.  How much money have I given solidworks in my 20 years as a user?  Obviously WAY, WAY too much.
