SolidEdge Fails to run


I just down loaded an installed SE2d. I followed the instructions for copying
SELicense.txt to SELicense.dat before I ran the install.
When I try to run the program, I get an error message about an invalid
license file syntax.
What's that all about and how do I fix it?

Re: SolidEdge Fails to run

Open your license file with Notepad.
It should look like the lines below with the exception of the date and the
actual license code of which I have replaced with X's for security's sake.
INCREMENT solidedge2ddrafting sedemon 19.0 30-sep-2007 uncounted \
XXXXXXXXXXXX HOSTID=DEMO
Some e-mail systems convert it to another format when downloading, and they
can add characters to it that hose it up.

Re: SolidEdge Fails to run


Thanks for your quick response.
This is what the license file has in it, with exception to the numbers which I
have x-ed out...
INCREMENT solidedge2ddrafting sedemon 19.0 30-sep-2007 uncounted \
XXXXXXXXXXXX HOSTID=DEMO

Do the
 and 
need to be removed?
Thanks,

Yes, remove them, they should not be there. Remember to use Notepad when
editing it.

Re: SolidEdge Fails to run


Thanks for comfirming that for me.
On a whim I edited them out of the license file and was able to launch SE.
On another subject, Where did they hide the polygon command? I would like
to be able to draw things like hex nuts and bolts without having to resort
to the long "drawing board" approach. That is not productive, even on "Free"
software. One would think that by version 19 of any drafting package
the programmers would have figured out how to include an N-sided polygon
command.
Thanks.

Re: SolidEdge Fails to run

Harold,
There is no built in command for polygon creation, however in the
non-free version, there is a Visual Basic macro that provides this
functionality. I agree that one is needed natively.

Harold, I had the same problem until I was advised by a UGS guy to start the
program as follows
Go Start (botom left corner) - Select Programs - then look for Solid Edge 2D drafting
V19 - Click on Blue coloured "Solid Edge 2D Drafting
Best of luck!
