Hi @MiniX

 

Sorry you are having problems installing the software.  It sounds to me as if the installation file was corrupted during the file transfer.  Please re-download the file and try again.

 

Thanks

Melanie

Hi there @MiniX,

 

What web browser [Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox...] are you using for the download...??

I suspect you will need to use a download manager to resume the download from a connection [for many different reasons] interuption. There are a number of free applications to use, that are suitable for different browsers.

I use Google Chrome browser, and have "Chrono" download manager installed. This has served me very well, for the many large Siemens downloads over the years.

Hi @MiniX,

 

The file is way too large for conventional email transmittal. [2GB]

 

You'll either need find a way to make the download work, maybe on a faster, more stable connection.....or, possibly you can go to the local Solid Edge reseller, and ask for a flash drive copy of the installation file.....and then you can use your license code that you will already have.
