I have a student license for SolidWorks 2016. My current laptop cannot handle the demands of the software so I ordered a new laptop. My question is, can I transfer my existing license to the new laptop? If so, how do I go about it?
Install SolidWorks on your "new" computer.
Start SolidWorks on your "old" computer --> pull down menu help --> than "transfer license" or in newer version "deactivate license".
Start SolidWorks on your new computer and activate or use 30 day trial (don't activate).
If your using an SEK license (issued by your school) then you wont need to do what Richard says. You can just use the SEK on any student install. Otherwise with any other kind of license you will have to transfer/deactivate it as above.
