How to Deactivate a SOLIDWORKS License

Over time computer hardware gets old, and as a result, it needs to be replaced. Although new gear can be exciting, it comes with the hassle of transferring your software. When we change the hardware running SOLIDWORKS, be it a client with a stand-alone license or a server running the SolidNetWork License Manager, it will require us to deactivate the serial number used for the installation.

In this blog post, I’ll give you step-by-step directions on how to deactivate your SOLIDWORKS license.
