License

N/A

I have been using SolidEdge 2D and when I opened today I got a message that the license
needed ud. I clicked on "Update License File" and was taken to a page to fill my
information in and download the latest version. Did that and installed and still
get the same message.
I also get a message to install Net Framework 2 Sp1 but it always fails. I have
Framework 3.0 on my system. I now get a message that Framework update failed and
a button to continue anyway, I click to install anyway. When I click to run I get
the message to update my license. So now I can't ru SE 2d.

Jerry,
Did you uninstall the previous version before trying to install the new
version?
You cannot have two versions loadtd at the same time.
What version were you running previously?
You can ignore the error about .NET and continue with the installation.

Yes, I uninstalled. I was using the latest V102. I uninstalled and used my previous
download to re-install. That didn't work. Still got "Solid Edge 2D Drafting could
not find a valid license, with a tab to click on to update license.

For me is the same. I can not register.

Go to the "Solid Edge 2D Drafting\Program" folder. That is a folder called
"\Program" under the "Solid Edge 2D Drafting" folder.
Look for a file called 'SELicense.dat' in that folder. There should not be a
file of that name in the "Solid Edge 2D Drafting" root folder.
Double click on the file and open it with Notepad.
There should be a date in the file. What is this date?
Do not modify this file. Exit out of the file without saving.

Re: License

All,
I have seen this in a couple of cases.
First, Solid Edge 2D Drafting will NOT run through a remote desktop. It will
not find the license.

Second, check to see if you have a LM_LICENSE_FILE system environment
variable defined.
In Windows Explorer (My Documents) right mouse click on 'My Computer'.
Click on properties.
In the System Properties dialog click on the Advanced tab.
Click on the Environment Variables button.
Look for a variable name called LM_LICENSE_FILE.
If you see it, write down the name namd definition of this variable.
This is a variable used by our license management system (FLEXnet). This is
also used by many other products.
All products using FLEXnet should define their own license variable when
specific licensing needs are required.
However, some use this generic variable, which may interfere with 2D
Drafting obtaining the license.
If you have this variable delete it and reboot. Run 2D Drafting again to see
if it obtains the license.
The definition of LM_LICENSE_FILE sould give you an indication what software
was speciffically using this generic variable.
Run that software to see if it runs properly. If it does then that software
did not need the variable and you are good to go.

Re: License

I have found another thing to check.
If you have set the system date back in time then the license check will
fail.
