  • Visit the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal and either:
    • Login using your existing login information
    • Create a new SOLIDWORKS ID by clicking the “Create a SOLIDWORKS ID” button and using your company email credentials





  • After you login to the customer portal, locate and follow the “register my products” link.




  • Input your MySolidWorks Professional serial number that was provided by your reseller. Note: be certain to remove any spaces in your serial number, especially if you’re using cut and paste to enter your data.




  • Next, you’ll be asked to select a version. Click on the “Check Mark” to get the product list and select MySolidWorks Professional.






  • You will receive a confirmation that your serial number has been registered.




  • Navigate your browser to “My Products”.




  • Locate “MySolidWorks Professional” on your list. Note: it may take around 15 minutes for MySolidWorks Professional to appear.




  • Once “MySolidWorks Professional” appears on your products list, login to Remember: This login will use the same information as the credentials used in your Customer Portal account from step one. If you are already logged into MySolidWorks, you may have to logout and back in to see MySolidWorks Professional features.




  • Now you should test your account to ensure that MySolidWorks Professional has activated. Do this by choosing the Training option. If the Freeform Feature has an “Add” button instead of an “Upgrade” button, you have successfully activated your MySolidWorks Professional account. Note: if it still lists “Upgrade” try logging out and then logging in again.




  • If you receive any error messages or have any questions, please contact your reseller.

  • This is the most convoluted process I have ever seen to get a product! I have been told a different story on what has to happen to do this at least 3 different times from my VAR, and I’m not sure if they still know what has to happen. I’m a little unclear, but it seems to be a communication issue between the VAR and SolidWorks…

    I was really hoping to give the professional product a try, but I’m not sure if it’s worth all this hassle…

    • We are working on streamlining this process.

      In the meantime, in order to unlock MySolidWorks Professional content a user must register their MySolidWorks Professional product serial number with their SOLIDWORKS online account. It’s the same process when registering your SOLIDWORKS product serial numbers to unlock access to KB etc.

      Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have suggestions for improvement in this area.
