If you are a GoEngineer customer your SOLIDWORKS serial number grants you access to MySolidWorks Standard.

To upgrade to a MySolidWorks Professional account please contact your GoEngineer account manager. Once you have upgraded you will receive a MySolidWorks Professional serial number from SolidWorks that must be used to access your MySolidWorks Professional account.

Note: Your MySolidWorks Professional serial number is NOT the same as your SOLIDWORKS serial number.
