Which SOLIDWORKS versions are supported?

You are here:

Lightning runs on SOLIDWORKS 2017 and newer. We have tested Lightning with every version of SOLIDWORKS, from 2017 until 2021.

Add-ins are activated for all SOLIDWORKS installations that are installed on a pc. That is why Lightning checks the SOLIDWORKS version when starting up.

Lightning only continues loading when it detects SOLIDWORKS 2017 or newer.
