Solidworks is available to current students of the Faculty of Science and Technology at Middlesex university University.
The student license is only available through a licensing server on-campus which required a VPN connection that creates a secure connection between your computer and the University network
The need for VPN is to confirm you are a current Middlesex University student.
Question: Do you recommend turning off anti-virus scanning when installing SolidWorks?
Answer: Certain anti-virus (AV) applications do not allow system resources to be updated if they are in use. The other issue with having the AV on during installation is performance-related. With that said, most users cannot turn off their AV software due to corporate IT policy. If you are using one of the recommended AV programs, you should not experience issues installing SolidWorks.
