I just installed the educational (student) version of Creo 3.0. After opening any file from the part community or creating a new file I get the warning that my student version is not capable of opening the files, since I am using the student version.
So which files can I open - since I can not even create a new file. The program is directly closing after the warning. Or how can I create and enable a new template file, if this is the original issue?
You can not open commercial version files in the student version. You don't have to have a template file. If you just go FILE NEW PART and give it a name, you should get a new part file. Then you can create datums, features, or whatever you need.
There are some educational version files here on the community. If you search around, you will likely find some.
