Downloading Solid Edge ST8 slow





Out school has Solid Edge, and we use it for our students.

We have never had problems with Solid Edge before, but now when we try to download ST8 we get a download speed between 20 kb/s - 200 kb/s.


This is very slow and it takes from 4-8 hours to download it and that we cant do when we have so many students to download it for.


Aint it possible to do something from your end here?

We have a GB internet connection, so the problem aint here.

Hi there @GauldalVGS,


Not sure what could be causing you to see unusually slow connection with the download server, as I don't get the same issue, for the numerous downloads I've made from it over the years......but, could you not download it once locally, then distribute it from your end?

Actually, I recall there was a new licencing method now for Student Edition, so may not be just as easy as that.


What can be done here @Melanie_Baeske?

Re: Downloading Solid Edge ST8 slow


Hi there.


It worked perfectly in December 2015 last time i checked.

But when i download now, its pretty slow.


Took me about 5 min before, and now it takes about 5 hours to download.

I can download it on my computer and distribute it, but there is about 200 students who should have it, and not everyone is on school property because of teting fields they go to and such.

Hi @GauldalVGS


It seems that there have been some general network problems this week, and that this was especially a problem yesterday morning.  Could you please try again and let me know the result?
