Need a Student License

Hi there!

I´m from Germany and I tried to download ST8 but for some reason the download speed is very por for the last 2 weeks. A friend of mine gave me his installer on USB Stick for ST8 but now I need a License file.

I am a student of mechanical engineering. A received a automatically generated email but no license file. It says the key is embedded.
