We are considering a switch from SolidEdge to Solidworks and noted the
service packs that are generated througout a bversion year. If we buy in
later in the year can we justinstall the latest update or do we need to
install them sequentially as they were released ?
Whenever you buy SW you will generally get the latest version on the
disk. If you purchase the subscription service you have nothing to
IMHO you actually want to wait till at least SP 3 or later when
purchasing SW new due to the general trend for software to be not
quite ready for the big time on the first release. I would suspect
this is true of SE, Inventor and anything else also.
