Re: Solid Edge ST9 - Maintenance Pack 4 Announcement


Hi There - 


I have solid edge ST9 academic version. I am having a host of issues with it crashing / not performing as intended so I'd like to install this maintenance package. I am trying to get a "WebKey" account setup, however I don't know my "Sold-To-ID" since I have the academic version. How can I find it or is there a work-around? 


Thanks much

Nick Beers

If you got it through a school (you did not download from Siemens the "Student Version") your school administrator can get you the Maintenance Patch.  If you have the Student Version downloaded from Siemens, then you will not have access to the Maintenance Patch.

Production: SE 2019 MP5, Testing: SE 2020
