I have a student license for the 2019 version of Solidworks which I received through my university. However, the SEK installation page only allows me to download the 2020 installation package. What should I do?
Is this a new install? (You never installed previously 2019-2020?)
What do you see at http://www.solidworks.com/sek
This is what I see...
I am having the same issue. I am given the option to select the version like you show in your picture, however the Solidworks 2020 setup is downloaded regardless of which academic version I originally select. I suspect that the same issue is happening with the Harrison. Do you know what the problem might be?

This is the installation manager I get, and when I enter my serial number, It tells me that I do not have access to solidworks 2020, even though I chose the 2019-2020 installer.
I have the same problem, the license key we got from our head coach is 2019-2020. Picking 2019-2020 downloads the same installer as picking 2020-2021.
The next screen:
And the next screen:
Then after the save, double click the setup file, click unzip, then after it finishes it auto runs the installer:
The next screen is the serial number screen, I copied and pasted from the email the serial number.
The installer contacts the server:
Then the heartbreak:
I am having the exact same problem. I have a license from university for the 2019 version but the community download website only has the 2020 version.
I am also having the same issue. At the beginning of the semester, at that time I was able to install the version for 2019 but my computer died when I tried now the same error keeps popping up.
I am having the same problem. I have contacted customer/technical support through their email, but they direct me to this website, saying that they are my source for technical support: https://www.solidworks.com/support/student . Trying to contact them through that website leads to an error. It seems there is no help available to fix this.
I had the same problem. Thanks to this thread I figured out that it's not possible to download the 2019 installation manager from the website right now. I had installed Solidworks 2019 past June, from the website, and back then you did get the right version. I was able to recover the installation manager from my recycle bin and am currently installing SW.I'm willing to share the installation manager, but I don't know what is the best way to share files? The other option is contacting SW support to ask for the right version.
Hey, Could you share the installation manager with me? I think you might be able to upload it to google drive and then share it so I can download it. It might be too big for email but should be able to share via google drive, my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would you mind sharing it with me once you get at email@example.com
I got the correct download link for the 2019 installation manager. Here it is:
www.solidworks.com/201920EDUSOLIDWORKS . I am currently downloading the 2019 software! I contacted the people who are giving out 7-day software trials on the main page and they gave me the link. He also told me that schools have been given the new 2020 serial number too if you want to download that version.
Thank you Ryan!
You can attach zip files here. Max 30MB.
You can split zip into smaller files.
I have the same problem. It will not download the 2019 installer only 2020
For everyone with this issue, I can confirm that the Solidworks 2020 academic licenses are now rolling out to education centers. How long have they been rolling out 2020 serial numbers to colleges, that I do not know. However, I can advise you all to contact your school's IT support or the chair of the school of engineering to see if these serial numbers have reached you yet. Note that I can verify that the serial numbers are being released, so this is not an empty claim. However, I am not affiliated with Solidworks, so this might be a case by case, or rather, school by school issue. Hopefully this helps.
You can go to: https://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/downloads.htm and choose correct version.
