ST7 invalid license code


Hi - first time poster


I am trying to activate my student version of ST7 and all works fine until the Academic Activation code is entered.  I get an error message stating that the code is invalid.


I received the welcome email (see excert below).  My systems meets the requirements, I donwload the software (english) from the link provided.   and enter the code provided.  


Any suggestions on what could be causing the problem.  I followed all instruction provided. Uninstalled several times and reinstalled.  Re-downloaded and even re-registered.  Always the same result.


Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi there,


I can only guess that the code is being entered incorrectly....have you tried copy & paste the code directly into the input field? Make certain only to select the code characters, with no preceeding spaces either.

Re: ST7 invalid license code


Thanks guys for the suggestions.


I am cutting and pasting the activation code from the provided email - so that is not the problem


I am also running a Win7 64bit machine with graphics card 8G ram and 3+G i5 CPU.  so that should not be the problem.


The PC that I am installing on does not have an activated version of windows at this stage - but I would not think that would be the problem.


Can someone from Siemens load the software and use the code provided to confirm it is OK.

Are there any logs that I can capture and send through?


Other suggestions welcome?

HI all,


I had some success and thought I would post the possible solution.  I say possible as Im not 100% sure what the actual solution was but its now working.


SolidEdge does not appear to work over Remote Desktop Connection, and although I had tried several minor things when I entered the activation code natively on the machine it worked.  I cannot say 100% wheter the fix was the fact I tried it natively on the host machine or one of the other things I did.


However it does appear that Solid Edge does not work over RDP - but I will keep trying to sort this out.
