If you are currently using a stand-alone SOLIDWORKS license, you may not be aware that you have the ability to use that license anywhere you have SOLIDWORKS installed! Simply run through the deactivate process on your active system and this will free the license up to be activated on another computer. This allows you to quickly transfer your license from your workstation, to a lab computer, to your home computer or anywhere else you need to run SOLIDWORKS.
