Roger, Since you have access to the newsgroup, I assume you have been to the www.solidedge.com/free2d web page and registered to download the software. Is that correct? If you had a problem with the download, you can go backto the web page and register again. There is no problem with registering again. When you register, you will be taken to the web page to download the software. Follow the directions on the web page. The file you download, SE2DDraft.exe, is an installation executable. Once you download this executable, you must run it to install the software. Follow the directions during the installation. If you have already downloaded the executable, you should still have it and all you need to do is to run the file to install. Regards, Rick B.
