If you are having difficulties installing Solidworks on your personal PC, please attempt the following steps:

  1. Make sure you are on a campus network or the University VPN before attempting to log into the instructions page.
    • Information on the University VPN can be found here
  2. Make sure you have completely uninstalled any previous versions of Solidworks before attempting a new installation.
    • This may include editing the Windows Registry to manually remove some keys; if you are not comfortable with registry editing, seek additional support!
  3. If you are still having problems, please send email to with screenshots of any specific error message being displayed, or stop by our 268 SN lab and speak with a PA.

If you successfully install Solidworks, but have issues getting the application to launch, try changing the start icon to use compatibility mode and/or administrative privileges. If you need assistance with this, please stop by our 268 SN lab and speak with a PA.
