Student Expired license

Hello, 

So I'm trying to download PTC Creo 4.0 on my personal computer so I can work on homework at home. I had PTC Creo 3.0 on the same device a year ago for a different class but now when I try to download Creo 4.0 it keeps saying my license is expired. Every time I try to renew my license the system does not recognize my username and password. How can I get a license that isn't expired?

I've had the same problem for months and haven't been able to resolve it.

Re: Student Expired license

Hi,

 

according to my todays tests, when you launch setup-schools.exe, installation procedure will receive license file containing Creo 3.0 licenses instead of Creo 4.0 licenses.

 

Solution no.1:

  • remove all files from C:\ProgramData\PTC\Licensing directory
  • install Creo 3.0

Solution no.2:

  • remove all files from C:\ProgramData\PTC\Licensing directory
  • install Creo 4.0 ... launch setup.exe
  • enter Product Code BK410705EDSTUDENTUNICL (if you are university student)
  • you will receive license file containing Creo 4.0 licenses

  • remove all files from C:\ProgramData\PTC\Licensing directory
  • install Creo 4.0 ... launch setup.exe
  • enter Product Code BE410708EDSTUDENTEDK12 (if you are K-12 student)
  • you will receive license file containing Creo 4.0 licenses

How about college students,  can they use that code too?

Hi,

 

if college student = university student then see Solution no.2:

Thanks so much, that solves it for me.

It is worth noting that the folder you refer to is hidden by default so you will have to get windows to show hidden folders first.

Re: Student Expired license

Hi,

 

I think I do not have to set show hidden directories property. I just insert C:\ProgramData\PTC\Licensing path into Windows Explorer address field and press ENTER.

Mine is still saying it is using the old download, how do I change that?
