can any one tell how to install solidworks 2011 without rmoving solidworks 2010 and keep both copies work on the same network license
You would need to update the SolidNetwork License Manager to Version 2011 and Browse and update the 2011 Network file and
All you need to do is run the dvd of SWX 2011 and when it detects the older version of SolidWorks it would prompt you to upgrade or create a new installation and followed by the serial number window.
Keep following the Wizard and you are good to go.
You just need to update the license file for SW2011.
Our IT updated our Network License to 2011, but it would still only run 2010.
(edit - and previous versions. SW2011 said that it could not locate a license.)
Later, they said that they fixed it by activating the 2011 license.
With 2010 License & License Manager you cannot run Swx 2011 Version, But you can run previous versions of 2009,2008 Etc.
With 2011 License file you can help run the previous versions of the SolidWorks, For Ex: 2010,2009,2008 Etc.
I hope this helps you doubt.
