    Treehouse - does each user need a Solidworks licence?

    John Wayman

      I can see a possible use-case for people outside the engineering department, but I'm not about to buy them a Solidworks licence!

       

      SW2018, SP4

          There is a current ER: 943881 - SolidWorks Treehouse should work without the need of the license activation. Create a standalone version..

           

          Due that that, I suspect the answer is  yes, the user needs a license.

           

          I suspect it has less to do with licensing than with the swdocmgr.dll that 'reads' the references. That is installed/registered with SOLIDWORKS and most likely missing from the peripheral products, even if you figured out how to install those without a license.
