I've got quite a few machines to update to 2019.
In the past, I've always been told that upgrading Solidworks is a big no-no
Is this still true? I a clean install ALWAYS better?
Upgrading would be a lot less hassle, but not if it causes issues.
I have 2018, 2019 and 2020 on my computer.
2018 and 2019 are updated form SP0 to SP5.
On Windows 10.
So you didn't do a clean installation, just an in-place upgrade?
What I meant was from one release to another, not a SP update.
All 3 are running on my computer.
I have 2019 and 2020 running side by side daily.
I thought you were using Inventor Frederick??
I hope Santa deliver this year.
Upgrading is perfectly fine, You may want to read the guide I attached as well however to make sure that you separate file locations. I would still recommend a clean uninstall every few years however so that the registry and such doesn't get too messy and bloated.
I "upgrade" for Service Packs.
I do fresh installs for new Versions.
