Removing Solid Edge

Here in a couple weeks this computer will be sent back to the factory. I have numerous problems to fix... So the computer will be set to factory setting. What will I expect that will be removed on Solid Edge while it is wiped out. Also, what will I do to set Solid Edge back on the computer. This one year anniversary I believe is coming to an end. How do I renew If able to!

Thank You

Crousie,

 

You will need to save your original downloaded install [*.EXE] file, and the license file....otherwise, you will need to re-download them. This, AFAIK, is also the method to obtain a "new" license file [via the sign up page] just no need to download, if you already have the installation file.

This is why I recommend saving such items to an external disc or drive.

I figured as much goes with this computer... I've wanted to see the license
just to see it. Came up with this, Runtime error 217 0047096D. Is this
error from not having a disk installed.
Thank You

Your user settings are stored in the registry key:   HKEY...

Your user settings are stored in the registry key:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions

 

So, you should make a copy of it and reimport it after your pc will be back.

 

Other things to be saved may be the installer, the license file, and other special files you have modified (templates, holes.txt, custom.xml, and so on).

According to what I hear ST6 is not available now. So I downloaded ST5
followed the directions and I cannot find the Sold To as well as the WebKey
to install any Ideas.

Crousie,

You do not get either of those pieces of information when using the Student Edition of Solid Edge. You only need to point the license manager to the "SELicense." file from the email you will have recieved, and saved to a known location on your PC.
Once complete, Solid Edge should now be ready to run.

Note: the license file is just a text file. While it can be opened & read,...you must not modify it in any way, or it will fail to work.

Oh dear, that sounds bad....
When you say "So I deleted from Local C/:" I am hoping you mean "un-installed" via "Control Panel", right?
