it is possible that IH can download the MPs with my student version?
I have Windows 10 and ST7 and allegedly ST7 10 run on Windows from the MP 4 and higher!
No.....the maintenance packs are only available to commecial users on "current" paid annual maintenance.
As yet Windows 10 is not supported, in any of the current [nor previous] versions of Solid Edge....although, some users [on commercial licenses] have done so, and reporting their success, it is not yet recommended to upgrade to Win10.
If Siemens were to update the existing application,....I suspect they would most likely replace the software package on their server, and users would then need to re-download it and the completely uninstall & reinstall Solid Edge.
[Also note: these are only my thoughts....I don't work for Siemens, and nothing official has been said to this effect]

The Solid Edge ST8 Student Edition download is available now for you to download. It just posted within the past few minutes.
Please note that we are not aware of any serious problems running ST8 on Windows 10, but our testing is still underway and Solid Edge support running on Windows 10 has not been officially announced yet.
Please be sure that 3.5 .net (also required with ST7) remains installed on the machine.
