5 Myths about your SOLIDWORKS Network License Manager
November 29, 2016  by Amee Meghani, Applications Engineer

solidworks network licenseLet’s talk about your SOLIDWORKS network license and debunk those myths with facts. Which one of these 5 are you guilty of believing?

You accidentally received extra licenses (yassss!).

Not true.  Only once in 5 years have I seen SOLIDWORKS write an incorrect license file.  The way licenses are listed in the SNL can be misleading.  Suppose you have a network license containing 1 Professional License and 1 Standard license.  The SNL will show 1 Professional License and 2 Standard Licenses. Why?  Because when you are pulling a Professional license, the license manager is releasing a Standard license and the Professional ADD-INS.  So really the license manager listing should read “Professional ADDINS”, rather than “Professional”.  You cannot pull a Professional or Premium license without pulling a Standard license.

You don’t have the ability to use SOLIDWORKS on your home computer.
