Creo 3.0 student edition license expired how to re-license?

Hello all gurus

My one year student edition license for creo-3 had just expired, does anyone knows how to re-license/renew it? e.g. get a new product code etc?

Thanks very much!

Stacy,

That's fine, it should work that way as well. Just for your reference, here's the relicensing guide for Creo 3.0:

Thanks,

I am having the same problem.  Can't find anything anywhere.  Have you learned anything new?

I hate to think I'd have to remove the entire installation and start over. 

I saw "re-licensing" guide for Creo 2.0.  But, I don't think that will work since the product codes would not match.

I expect most FIRST FRC Robotics Teams have either experienced this or will soon (like me).

Does anyone know?

Hi Chao,

Are you a K12 (Schools) or University student?

Thanks,
Chris

Re: Creo 3.0 student edition license expired how to re-license?

Thanks for responding.  I am a mentor for a FIRST Robotics Team (High School).  Honestly, I figured this out a few days ago and failed to post what I found.  I actually just went ahead like I was doing a completely fresh install.  When the installation manager interface came up, it recognized that I already had Creo 3.0 and did not bother to re-load that stuff (I did go ahead and add the Mathcad stuff that was offered this year).

Suffice to say, I was disappointed that a process didn't exist for people who were renewing their license (or, if it does exist, it wasn't easier to find).  Regardless, it all worked out and I'm working just fine now.

Stacy,

Glad to hear it worked out. There is a relicensing guide available that makes the process easier than uninstalling and reinstalling. A search through the community should show it.

Thanks,
Chris

Re: Creo 3.0 student edition license expired how to re-license?

Just to be clear, I did not uninstall and reinstall.  I was very opposed to uninstalling.  I simply downloaded the new version without removing the old.  Then, when I went to the installation manager which listed the components of the download, it showed the existing Creo installation and indicated it would not reinstall those components. 

If there were re-licensing guides available, they were not easily located.  If I didn't to it correctly, at least I am currently able to work and create models.

Hello

I tried this re-licensing guide (the pdf file) but it say "Invalid product code".

Is there a new code that we should use?

So all working right now.

I did followed those steps given int he Relicensing guide...

But after I logged in, I end up with an ERROR status.

Also, When I am on active Internet connection, PTC Creo Parametric 3.0 M060 works perfectly, just asking some firewall access and I allow it.

But when I disconnect the Internet it shows a dialog box stating that my Schools License has expired!
