What is the easiest way to upgrade an installation from "Standard" to "Professional"? Is it as simple as doing a license transfer, and activating with the proper one. Or do I need to reinstall?
I would recommend a full reinstall by following these SW recommendations - http://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/subscription/tt_detail.htm?id=2
Thanks Troy, I was guessing that would be the answer I got, but was hopeful there was a less time consuming option.
Just transfer the license and reactivate. No reinstallation is needed. Professional is already installed on your system, you just need to activate the add-on programs.
On a network license, simply read in the updated license file. That's it. When a client opens, say Toolbox, the license manger will give out a Proferssional license. When Toolbox is unchecked, the Professional license will be checked back in. You don't have to restart SolidWorks.
