How to Access Newly Purchased Solidworks Network Licenses

When your company purchases licenses to add to your network pool Solidworks updates the activation manager with the extra licenses.  After this is complete you need to connect your SolidNetWork license manager to the activation manager to pull down the new licenses.  The steps to do this are as follows;

1 Log onto the server that hosts the SolidNetWork license manager.  If you are unsure of what machine this is you can open the “SolidNetWork license manager client” on one of the machines that runs Solidworks and on the “server list” tab check the name after the @ symbol
