we have two seats, one pro and one premium. we need to swap users. when i transfer both licenses back to sw and then try and reactivate i am not offered a choice of which one to use.
how do i do this please?
The quickest way (I did this on Monday) is to just go into the registry and swap the serial numbers (after returning both licenses). Then when you go to check the liceses out again, it will be with the proper serial numbers.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SolidWorks\Licenses\Serial Numbers There should be a value for "SolidWorks", that is your serial number. Just swap them.
Also, if you put in your install CD, it will first prompt you for the serail number, showing whatever it is currently installed as. You can swap it that way too, if you are weary of your registry. Just make sure you have admin access to the computer, or you can't use the installation manager.
