Invalid license file syntax

Not applicable
I downloaded the program and everything installed fine. I went to License Utility and selected browse to find SElicense.dat following path My Computer>CSmiley EmbarassedProgram Files>Solid Edge ST4>Program>SELicense. I click ok and the program closes. I go to ope Solid edge and I get a pop up dialog box that says:

SOLID EDGE LICENSE CHECK

Hi Ryan,
The directory you state, is the install path.....the existing license file is like a place holder for Solid Edge to look for at every start-up.
The correct file will be in the email you got, as an attachment, and should have the same exact name.
So close.... Smiley Very Happy

I receive an error message saying I don't have any valid Solid Edge Licenses. I used the SElicense.dat file I received via email and put in the program folder of the drive that the folder is on. My setup is Node locked and is an at HOME USE license. But My computer updated just the yesterday and since, I have been unable to open solid edge. However for up to the minute prior to my system update, and three months prior I had zero issues.

@SMF-ST8-1989 firstly I think a  new thread would have been more appropriate for your question.

 

With that said have you opened your selicense.dat file into a text editor and checked the Solid Edge version, the SE CID,  and the expiry date?

And you are currently running ST8?

Also, run the Solid Edge License Utility and check your SE CID in the to[ right-hand corner.  Is it showing as 41CFBCFEBC3A?  If not then your SE CID has changed.

 

If the version, date, or SE CID in the license do not match as expected then you will need to regenerate your home use license.
