Solidworks Licence Issues


New member
This is a bit of a random one so bare with me,

I recently bought a second hand PC to use at home and I am pretty sure this PC had a dodgy Solidworks Licence on it in the past.

I have a legal licence through work, but I am worried if I transfer my legal licence onto a PC that has had a dodgy licence I may get into trouble.

I know Solidworks use Hardware ID's for licences so technically this second hand PC may have been tainted by an illegal install.

Does anyone have any advice or experience in this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
