    transfer license

    jeff nguyen

      I have 2005 Solidwork license and would like to transfer from my old laptop to another.

      However, I'm not seeing "transfer" from help drop down option.  Please advise if there is another way to do this.

      Thanks in advance.

          The license transfer option was started somewhere with SW2008 (not sure completely). Before that there used to be a dongle that is installed on the back of your machine (in case of standalone version). If yours is a networking license then the dongle would be on the server.

           

          In case of standalone version, simply uninstall the software and remove the dongle. Then put the dong;e on other machine (where you want to have the license installed) and then install the software on that.

           

          In case of networked version, simply install the software on the other machine and use.
