NEW Serial Numbers for the included SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard 2017
*** Important Update ***
For Visualize Standard 2017 and beyond, an additional serial number is required to activate the complimentary seat of Visualize Standard.
- From October 19th, 2016, and once you have upgraded to SOLIDWORKS 2017, this new additional serial number for eligible users can be found by logging into the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal and clicking "My Products." Once you have copied this new Visualize Standard serial number, launch 'Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features,' select SOLIDWORKS Visualize, and click 'Change' at the top. Paste this new serial number in the Serial Number screen, for the SOLIDWORKS Visualize product.
- Using your SOLIDWORKS CAD Professional or Premium serial number will no longer activate a complimentary seat of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard 2017 and beyond.
- During this serial number transition, there will be a week of downtime without access to your complimentary seat of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard. This downtime is projected from October 10th, 2016 through October 18th, 2016. To avoid any downtime, delay your upgrade to SOLIDWORKS 2017 products until October 19th, 2016.
- If you have given this complimentary seat of Visualize Standard to someone else in your company, please send them the new serial number and these instructions so they can continue to access Visualize Standard.
***And for those of you who didn't even know you already received Visualize Standard complimentary, go to your SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal and click any of the 'Download Visualize' links to get started. This complimentary seat of Visualize Standard can be given to anyone in your company, and does not tie up a seat of SOLIDWORKS CAD ***
