I received an email from Mike Brown

I received an email from Mike Brown Director, Solid Edge Academic Relations today... The expiration is coming due. With this computer going back to factory soon. Do I wait to upgrade after the factory setting? If I do upgrade before the factory, will I have the same problems I have now! (Not with Solid Edge) of course!

Thank You

Crousie,

 

I recommend you don't do anything, until you get you PC back.

Once your all up & running, with latest windows updates, & antivirus definitions, etc...go through the Student Edition sign-up process again, exactly as previous, and you'll get a new license & download link...I also suggest you download the application file to your computer, and save a copy of both the executable and the license file to a flash drive [or similar]....then start the install.

Sean,
What do I use to save the work on Solid Edge... a flash drive or a CD. Put
some of the folders on flash drive. I think I made a mistake! The last time
I had a 45 day trial and went to a one year Student Edition, the files were
already set up. Any thoughts!
Thank You

Absolutely!....back up your SE creations to a external drive or CD/DVD.
I am assuming your PC will also be completely wiped & a fresh reload of Windows is being done.....in which case there will be no remnants of anything left. Having good file naming & folder structure management is pretty important also.
