SE2D will not run.

N/A

I try to run the software for the 1st time and get Licensing error -2,413 Invalid
License file syntax.
I emailed for another License, it does not work either.
Is it going to be this hard to roll this out on every station?
Thanks
Mike

When you recieved the license, did you open it in a text editor other than
Notepad and saved it? It is a straight text file, and apps like Word or
Wordpad convert it to a binary format. All that you need to do is open the
e-mail you recieved, select the "Save Attachment As" command, and save it as
"SELICENSE.DAT" in the folder "C:\Program Files\Solid Edge 2D Drafting
V19\Program". You may want to insure that you are showing file extensions
for known formats in Windows Explorer, otherwise you may have just renamed
it "SELICENSE.DAT.TXT" which will not work :^)

I just right clicked, save as "SELicense.dat" . I did not open it at all.
It overwrote the old one in the folder. But the program will not run.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Do you happen to have another Solid Edge product installed such as the
Viewer? You cannot have any other Solid Edge product installed when running
the free version.

Mike,
The name of the license file is case sensitive. If you get this error, most likely
it is the name of the file. It must be 'SELicense.dat'. Capital letters for "SEL"
only. Small letters for remaining characters "icense.dat". This is the name of the
original file sent. Some email systems mangle the names of the file attachments.
