Is Solid Edge ST5 available for student download?

I will be taking a class starting this week and just found out that it will be using ST5 not ST6. Is there some way to get the ST5 version for student use?

 

Thanks, Craig

Hi Craig,

 

The links I have fail, so one would have to assume it's no longer available on the Siemens server.

Your school/institute should hopefully be able to provide you with a copy of their installation file, and then your latest annual license file you register for, is backward compatible anyway. HTH.

I will see if they are willing to do that tomorrow at my school. 

 

Siemens has to be aware that schools do not always update the software every year so it would be nice if they still supported the older versions with the student program.

Yeah....I understand, but really it'is nothing new in the software industry. Support for legacy versions can only go so far.

 

Actually.....is the school still on Windows XP by any chance?....as that may be the limiting factor. [just guessing.....as the only cost to academic upgrades, is time]

 

Best of luck with your studies.
