Hello, I am currently a student who has downloaded the student edition of Solid Edge ST5 software. Unfortunately I was having troubles licensing the program. I will put my best effort to explain the situation. Not long ago, I downloaded the student edition of the Solid Edge program, and managed to get it installed perfectly without a predicament. However, when I clicked on the short cut to run the program, it stated “Your copy of Solid Edge must be licensed for first-time use.” as a pop-up. After pressing the “Ok” button, nothing occurred. Although it seemed like nothing happened, I believe that the software automatically directly to the “License Utility” program to get the product licensed because when I tried to run the “License Utility” manually (after trying to open the Solid Edge application), a pop-up appeared, this time stating “The Solid Edge license is currently in use. Please exit your Solid Edge session then restart the Licence Utility.” So I restarted the computer and ran the License Utility, it asked for administrative permission, so I accepted, and nothing happened after that, and the application still said it must be licenced first. I found that there was also a “License Browsing” tool, but it said “Licence Browsing is only valid with floating licenses.” I was devastated, I tried reinstalling the program several times, and I just gave up. I will inform you with some additional information that could help you conclude what the problem or problems are. I have an Acer Aspire X3475 with the model name/code of AX3475-EF328. It is currently running Windows 8 and has no other known malfunctions. I purchased this new computer fairly recently and I have already downloaded a student edition Solid Edge on my previous computer I believe with the same e-mail address if that may conflict with the licensing. Please, I beg you for your help, I would love to utilize the program soon. Thank you very much for your time and consideration, and do not hesitate on asking any questions that may assist in solving this issue.
Similar Problem. Have an ICON showing on my lower BAR "Click to go to SolidEdge" HOWEVER when it opens for the first time - I am required to enter the First Time User Info as the previous post indicated.
My ACER ASPIRE is now Running WIN 7 64bit with no other Glitches .(I have seen elsewhere that SE will not currently run WIN 8)
When I try to Confirm my LOST ID or PW - I get replied with " We Don't recognize You as a user???)
I have installed and used AD INVENTOR 2013, Sketchup 8 PRO and SolidWorks using Internet Downloads. SE should not be this frustrating.
