I kicked down $1800 and paying another $1800 at the end of this month and next month.
Installed about 1 week ago and it was all working last night. Then this morning I start solidworks and says I need to activate it??? WTF!!!!
Did you activate it a week ago when you installed it? If not, activate it now.
Yes I activated it right away after installation. I am very familiar with solidworks licensing model, been using it since 2005.
Check if the UAC or the AntiVirus block writing to SW regisitries.
Do a simple test. Turn off the UAC and the AV, activate and restart your machine.
If needed, read steps 7 and 8 from this guide: http://www.javelin-tech.com/main/support/pdf/solidworks_uninstall.pdf
