Product activation is an anonymous, secure, and hassle-free process designed to deter unlicensed use of SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Simulation software.
Product activation is used for commercial single-user (standalone) licensing for SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Simulation products.
Product activation has proven to offer the SOLIDWORKS community various advantages:
- A secure, and hassle-free process that authenticates licensed users
- A consistent licensing process that works for both SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Simulation products
- Licensing that is consistent with other leading software companies
- A deterrent to unauthorized use of SOLIDWORKS products with a minimal effect on you, our loyal customer
- To register a product not under activation:
a) Log into the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal at http://www.solidworks.com/customerportal.
b) Register your product(s) under the Register My Products link in the My Information section.
- Activation customers still should register their products to have full access to all features within the Customer Portal
(with an active Subscription Service contract).
As always, we welcome your feedback and questions.
