Using the MSC Software Solutions download center, you can have access to the latest releases of your MSC Software packages by simply downloading the installation files.

Once you have finalized the purchase order for the first time, an account will be automatically created for the electronic delivery administrator who will then have administrative rights to the solutions download center. The administrator will be able to create an account for any other person who require access to the Solutions download center. The administrator can also give administrative rights to another member if it is required.

If the Solutions download center cannot be accessed due to there being no administrator, in the case where the administrator is no longer available, or simply due to lost login details, you can obtain new login details by going to the login page of the solutions download center.

There you will be able to get help by choosing one of the following options as shown in Figure 1:

  • Password finder
  • Registration page
  • Customer support
