For some reason when i try installing solidworks, it says that there are some missing files that I need to download. I am sure that there is a problem but can't find out what is it.
Where did you downloaded the files from OR from where you got them? Does the error message list out about missing files or option to manually download them?
I got the installer from Solidworks website, and yes it lists them but where can I download them manually?
The list will have the file name as hyperlinked or option to download them.
For some reason i can't get to there, could you send me a link or something.

what if we don't need/want to download the whole SP again?
just need one file. doing an admin image when the sever is not going to be on the net! using the downtime to run the install. as no one will be trying to run the programs!
Link did not work. got error message. File not found.
tried it again, worked the 2nd time!
See Kevin Lamport post (above). Link takes you to a place to manually download individual files required.
I guess that would depend on which file is missing.
The link I posted above gives access to all the subset modules required for an install. If you need a specific file from within one of those modules you may be out of luck.
Do not bother me I can not I download a lock was shown in front of the site have not Please help /
You need to be on subscription to unlock those options. Please speak to your VAR (the company from where you bought the software from) to help you resolve that.
No one to contact if trying to download a student version for school. No one at the school knows how to fix this issue either. How is it missing files if I have never downloaded the program???
Have you tried contacting the SOLIDWORKS Student Support Request Form. Further have you followed the steps as stated in this video: How to Download Solidworks 2017/2018 Student Version
Also ask your professor/teacher to contact the person/company from where they got/bought the license for the school.
Same problem. I need student version for school. I registered product with serial # etc and do not have access to downloads. It is locked. Did not purchase it as it is for school and school has no idea how to fix this issue or grant me access to the download option. Why is this always such a nightmare with Solidworks? Inventor, HSM, and Process installed no issue at all.
The Student process is different than the commercial one, so the Customer Portal/manual method proposed here by our helpful users will not apply.
Please submit a support request here.
They'll have some other troubleshooting and correction ideas.
