CAD administrators often need to review license usage and identify SOLIDWORKS serial numbers within their network. Serial number of a SOLIDWORKS installation can be found in Help > About SOLIDWORKS. In a large CAD department, checking each machine can be time-consuming. The SOLIDWORKS CAD Admin Dashboard is a quick and easy way to view serial numbers of the SOLIDWORKS installations within the same network.
The above event message has no functionality or performance impact on the client systems. This event provides a warning that multiple disks on the system shared the same identification information (like serial number, page 83 IDs, and so on.)
Windows If your drive is connected to your computer: Seagate has created a very simple tool that will tell you the serial number and the model number of any and all Seagate, Samsung and Maxtor-brand drives connected in or to your computer. Use the DriveDetect.exe method to find both numbers.
If your drive is not detected or connected to your computer: The USB devices have the serial numbers printed on the external cases and internal drives have the serial and part numbers on the drive labels.
*Potential issues - I've no problems with most third party programs like MS Office. The problem hits with Adobe (they are very protective of their intellectual rights and getting paid). The Adobe high end programs will request serial numbers or re-installation and even tell you that they've been transferred by a Time Machine backup. 2b1af7f3a8
