Why has the option in Help to be able to Activate/Deactivate been removed?
What commands does your 'Help' menu show? Could you post up a picture of what option you are getting?
Don't see any help menu's at all...
My only answer to this, is to uninstall 2020 and it did deactivate the license. Looks like I may cancel my subscription and just stay with my 2019. Had some extra time, so I thought an update may be nice. That didn't work!
Thanks for your time!
In 2020 SP3 and newer the help menu moved to the? top right of the screen. Click on that question mark and you will find your menu for deactivate
I have to be honest I don't see the point to it being moved to just the top right when previously it was in 2 places.:(
But always if you are on subscription then give your VAR (reseller) a call, this forum is mostly SW users giving up their time to help others
I work for one I the UK and sdor sure even if you weren't on subscription if you called us we'd still help you move a license you paid for!
Switch to online license and you don't need to activate and deactivate.

Provided your firewall allows the connection...I'm still waiting on our IT to open the 80 and 443 ports along with allowing *.solidworks.com. They also blocked web sessioning in for my VAR, AGAIN! I got them to unblock web sessioning, but they haven't responded to the support ticket on the standalone SW licenses working.
I just got mine to unblock SW error report. Took them 2 days to figure out how.
The firewall was blocking aspx file. Also block encrypted connection.
We're using Sophos. Looks like very powerful but it's blocking so many thing by default.
It was blocking Google Translate, Samsung Galaxy Store app update.
Still can't play game on work wifi .....
