Solid Edge Academic Version and Student Edition

A few questions about the new Student Edition of ST4:

1) Are the Solid Edge Academic Version and the Student Edition the same in terms of their functionality?

2) If not, what are the differences?

3) Are they compatible in terms of file transfer between them?

4) Can the Student Edition license file be used with the Academic Version?

Thanks in ancitipation,

Yes the 2 are the same in functionality and you can transfer files between the two. The Student license will work with the Academic version.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I have since tried the Student Edition licence file with the University Edition. It works but apparently with reduced functionality - e.g. Simuluation does not appear to be available.

Does the Student Edition have Simulation? On a Siemens fact sheet that I have, it appears not.

Correct - there is a difference in functionality between the Academic Version and the Academic University version. The Student Edition is the same functionality as the Academic Version - so no simulation.

Thanks again for a prompt response.

So are there three academic versions? 1) Academic Version, 2) Academic University Version and 3) Student Edition? If so is there a definitive list detailing the features available in each? What about compatibility of files between them.

There is only 1 version of software with 2 versions of licensing (Academic and Academic University). Each license enables specific functionality. The Student Edition licensing enables the same functionality as the Academic licensing. Files can be transferred between them. The Student Edition license has a specific expiration date based on when it was installed.

Thank you - that is very helpful.

Is there a definitive list giving the functionality in Academic and Academic University?

There has been a delay in the arrival of our proper University Version licence, and our current one is about to expire soon.

In this situation is it OK for me to use a Student Edition licence with the University Version on multiple computers? This will give me one year's use but with reduced functionality.
