Ooops. Forgot to transfer my license of the computer before wiping SolidWorks from the computer. What happens now?
Contact you VAR they can get it reset @SW
Contact your VAR and they can disable the computer and free up the activation. I do it every week for various reasons.
Restoring the backup to the same computer will probably work.
Right John. I reinstalled the software on my local machine and SolidWorks license was activated without any problems. VAR advised SW recognises the ID of the machine.
Yes, SW has its own algorithm for idenfifying a machine, and I don't know that they have ever published it.
You can now (as of 2011) Download just the activation manager from the software updates section for just this reason. Install that, and this will enable you to transfer the license off a machine, if you have forgotten to do it.
Thanks for that.
Hello, -- Would you mind posting the link to the program that let one transfer license to new computer. -- Thanks, Steve
At the bottom you will see the 32 bit & the 64 bit version of the SW Activation Wizard.
