With Dassault Systemes continuing to add new features and functionality to DraftSight, I have been getting more and more requests for help getting DraftSight up and running. That brings us to the first and possibly most important point with Draftsight activation, What kind of Draftsight license are we talking about?
There are three different licenses for Draftsight, and they all use the same download, but each one has its own activation process.
DraftSight Enterprise now works with the SolidNetWork license manager right alongside your existing SOLIDWORKS network license. To add your DraftSight license to an existing license manager, open the control panel on the server hosting the license manager > programs and features > uninstall programs. Then select the license manager and use change button (alternately you can right click on the license manager and choose change there as well) this launches the installation manager.
