Experimenter
Experimenter
I have not used solid works 2d in 3 years, but need to update some drawings. I have downloaded the latest version from the free2d page, which is st6. I go through the setup process and can not get past the license page. I select need to visit siemans website, enter my webkey info, go to manage licence and page will not load only refreshes current page. I have read many differnt posts and most are 5 or more years old. I went though the solidedge program file and there is a selicense.dat file.
How do i get this wonderful program to work? Help me please.

Solid Works?

 

ST6?

 

 

the best answer I can give is, to download the current ST10 version of Solid Edge - the free 2D - and simply use it.

 

It will open Your old files too as well as it will to it for more current files.

And it has a lot of improvements over the old ST6

In the program files it displays the download as st6 I'm not sure if it did download st10 however I used the direct link on the website and I installed this to a new computer so there were no old files from a previous version

Hi @Todd1

 

 

 

if You just go to the Siemens Solid Edge homepage and do the Free 2D download should bring You the ST10 with MP3

I used your link to download file. However i can not open file. Keep getting prompted by windows 7 pro asking what program to use to open file....I double checked that my windows was up to date and it is. I also tried downloading to a different location and that did not help. Any ideas? The file size is 2.57gb but file type is unknown.

Hi there @Todd1,

 

It's pretty easy, really........run "License Utility" from the Solid Edge group in Windows programs list.....then select the bottom option as shown below, and your good to go.
