Many SOLIDWORKS users transfer their license between computers to allow them to work from home or another location in onsite etc. The license transfer and activation process is pretty straightforward, but there are the odd occasions where it fails and SOLIDWORKS displays the following error message:

SOLIDWORKS Activation Transaction Failed: Activation Count Exceeded

If you’re seeing the ‘Activation Transaction Failed: Activation Count Exceeded’ error message, your SOLIDWORKS license is already activated elsewhere and could have been caused by any of the following:

  • SOLIDWORKS is still activated on another PC
  • You’ve recently changed hardware or Operating System on your PC
  • You have a completely new PC
  • The transfer didn’t complete properly the last time you attempted it

How to fix it

If you suspect your license is in use elsewhere:

Log onto the machine where you think the license is and deactivate the software. To do this go to Help > Deactivate License.

If you think that the deactivation of your licence didn’t go through:
