ST8 DOWNLOADED - CAN'T FIND

Genius
Genius

I just completed downloading ST8 to my Windows 7 pc (fr http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/solid-edge/free2d/index.shtml), or at least I thougth that I did.  It took over an hour to do so. However, I can't find it in Programs, Uninstall/Install, or via Explorer. There's no icon on my desktop. I didn't uninstall ST7 first because there were no instructions to do so.

 

What am I missing or where should I look for it?

 

Thanks,

Ron

Hi Ron,

 

By default, the file will be placed into your "Downloads" folder....this will be an executable file to install the application.....the installer will tell you that another version is installed, and must be uninstalled, via control panel, prior to loading the new one.

Hi Ron,

 

You must still have the ST7 download [which I alway recommend keeping a copy of any downloaded appplication] sitting there.

 

Try downloading it again, as I just checked, and ST8 is there....which reminds me, I need to upgrade our factory staff computers to ST8.
