The Solid Edge ST10 Free 2D Draft and Student Edition download executables have been updated to include installing ST10 MP3 (i.e. 110.00.00.107 + 110.00.03.003). This fixes some issues encountered with the release version opening cetain legacy files. If you have experienced problems opening some older files, please download this new executable, uninstall your current version of Solid Edge, and reinstall from this download.
I have Solid Edge 2D Free, version 8, loaded in 2016. I have tried unsuccessfully to download ST 10, the free 2D version on 3 occassions over the last 2 days. All processes get to the point where "we recognize an older version and need to uninstall it" . The uninstall wizard comes up, then times out and says I need to try again. There is no sign of version 10 in any folders or files, or any indication on where to re-try the uninstall. Also, the download takes about 75 minutes and the "I am not a robot" function comes up every 2 minutes or so - many times with matching pictures to click. This means you have to stay put and monitor - frustrating! Using Windows 10 and Internet Explorer 11, plenty of RAM. Do I need to uninstall version 8 before starting?
